Song Lyrics

Long I slumbered, by sound sleep o'ertaken
Strange dreams, Comrade, bade me now awaken
Hear you not the wondrous tidings told by angels holy,
How that Jesus now is born and laid in manger lowly.

I'll delay not, there's no time for wasting
Onward now, to Baby Jesus' hasting.
Brother, be thou my companion on the way we're going,
While you shepherd lovely music on his pipe is blowing.

Hey, holly ho la, hey holly ho la.

Look you, Brother, we are many more now,
Play up, Piper, marching on before now!
Let us take a little lamb and give it Him, my Brother,
Let us sing our sweetest songs to Jesus and his mother!

Hey, holly ho la, hey holly ho la.

Stay no longer, now our visit's ending,
Brother, homeward, we must now be wending,
All these presents we have brought our love for Him are shewing,
Quickly thank the little Jesus, we must now be going.

Hey, holly ho la, hey holly ho la.

Just one moment let me be delaying,
Some more verses I would fain be saying,
Kneeling at the lowly manger humbly to adore Him,
Rising then with joyful heart to sing and dance before Him.

Hey, holly ho la, hey holly ho la.
