1. Sing of Maiden Mary,
And of Christ our Lord,
High and sole begotten,
Mary's holy Child.
O sing of Maiden Mary
Fairer, better Eve;
Glad praise and high thanksgiving,
Thou, O God, receive.

2. Sing of Maiden Mary,
And of Joseph too,
Loving foster father!
Mary's chosen Spouse;
O wondrous Incarnation!
Kneel down in awe
To worship thy Creator
Lying on the straw.

3. Sing of Maiden Mary,
Now the holly gleams;
As we keep our Christmas,
And the snow is deep;
Yes: when the wreaths are sparkling
When the lamps are hung,
And at the midnight kneeling,
Ere the Mass is sung.

4. Sing of Maiden Mary,
Once a Virgin poor,
David's Royal Daughter,
Eden's Lily Flower.
Sing aye of Maiden Mary
Kneeling on the sod,
And pray that we may see her
Near the Throne of God.
