1. Carol we high, carol we low,
Sweetly carol we soft and slow;
Carol we loud with the angel throng,
Carol we joyfully all night long.

2. Carol of fields, where in the night
Wakeful shepherds beheld a light;
Heard with amaze how in Bethlehem
Jesus, the Saviour, was born for them.

3. Carol how they joyfully ran,
There to behold their God made Man;
Leaving their flocks in the fields to be
Kept by the angels, right fearlessly.

4. Carol of how all on the hay
He whom the angels told of, lay;
Tenderly cherished by Mary's love,
Rev'rently worshipped by hosts above.

5. Carol we still -- O it is sweet
Thus the Infant Divine to greet,
Know that He loves us, feel He is nigh,
Through He is God who reigneth on high.

6. Carol how He cometh again,
Seated on clouds, the Judge of men;
Then shall His children with great delight
Rise up to meet Him in glory bright.
