The Hymns and Carols of Christmas

Jesu, Thou The Virgin Born

Words and Music: English Traditional

Jesu of a maiden Thou wast born,
To save mankind that was forlorn,
All for our sins.

Jesu fili virgine,
misere nobis.

Within a cradle He was laid;
Both ox and ass with Him played
With joy and bliss.

Jesu fili virgine
misere nobis.

Then for us He shed his blood,
And also died He on the rood,
All for our sins.

Jesu fili virgine,
misere nobis.

And then to hell He took the way,
To ransome them that there did lay,
With joy and bliss.

Jesu fili virgine,
misere nobis.
