The Hymns and Carols of Christmas

A Christmas Song

Words: William Cox Bennett
Vocal Recordings: MP3 / OGG

Source: Christmas: Its Origin, Celebration and Significance as Related in Prose and Verse - Robert Haven Schauffler (1907)

    Blow, wind, blow,
Sing through yard and shroud;
Pipe it shrilly and loud,
    Aloft as well as below;
Sing in my sailor's ear
The song I sing to you,
"Come home, my sailor true,
For Christmas that comes so near."

    Go, wind, go,
Hurry his home-bound sail,
Through gusts that are edged with hail,
    Through winter, and sleet, and snow;
Song, in my sailor's ear,
Your shrilling and moans shall be,
For he knows they sing him to me
And Christmas that comes so near.
