1. Carol, sweetly carol,
Raise your voices high,
On this happy morning,
Morn of peace and joy.
Let your voices mingle
With the angel's song:
Glory in the highest;
Thus the strain pro-long.

Carol, sweetly carol,
Sing the glad refrain.
Glory in the highest;
Peace, good will to men.

2. Carol, sweetly carol,
How on Judah's plain,
Shepherds heard the story.
Told in heav'nly strain:
Peace, good will from heav'n,
On this happy morn;
In a manger lowly,
Christ the Lord is born. Chorus

3. Carol, sweetly carol,
How with one accord
Wise men brought their offering
To their Infant Lord.
We would come before Thee
With our gifts today;
Rule and reign, Lord Jesus,
In our hearts alway. Chorus

4. Carol, sweetly carol;
Let the earth resound
With the wondrous story
To remotest bound:
Then shall men adore Him,
Their thank-offerings bring,
Join the happy chorus
Which the Angels sing. Chorus

Sheet Music from Rev. Charles Lewis Hutchins, Carols Old and Carols New (Boston: Parish Choir, 1916), # 237
