The Pagan Carol

The holly and the ivy
When they are both full grown,
Of all the trees that are in the wood,
The holly bears the crown.


Chorus:
Oh, the rising of the sun
And the running of the deer,
The playing of the merry organ,
Sweet singing in the choir,

The holly bears a blossom
As white as lily flower,
And when the Sun is newly born,
‘Tis at the darkest hour

The holly bears a berry
And blood-red is its hue,
And when the Sun is newly born,
It maketh all things new.

The holly bears a leaf
That is for ever green,
And when the Sun is newly born,
Let love and joy be seen.

The holly and the ivy
The mistletoe entwine,
And when the Sun is newly born,
Be joy to thee and thine.

Chorus: 
On, the rising of the Sun
And the running of the deer,
The playing of the merry organ,
Sweet singing in the choir.
