Let faithful Quires the carol raise,
The holy Innocents to praise. Alleluya, Alleluya.
With voices glad and hearts aglow,
Benedicamus Domino. Alleluya, Alleluya.
Hail! Victims of King Herod's sword,
Called back to life by Christ the Lord. Alleluya, Alleluya.
tuneful songs at Childermas, Alleluya, Alleluya,
And answer, Deo gracias. Alleluya, Alleluya.
