In These Twelve Days Lyrics
1. In these twelve days, and in these twelve days,
Let us be glad,
For God of his power

Who in Heaven above sets on this throne.

The one is the New, the other the Old.

And five of them are almost spent.

7. What are these that are but Seven?

Six to labour, the seventh holy.

8. What are these that are but Eight?
What are,

Which are the Blessings of the Good.

9. What are these that are but Nine?

Nine Degrees of Angels high?
Which do praise God continually.

10. What are these that are but Ten?

Use them well and go to Heaven.

11. What are these that are but Eleven?

To be crucified for Christ's blood.

12. What are these that are but Twelve?

To preach the Gospel to the Jews.
