Christmas Carols

The Sussex Mummers' Carol Lyrics
1. A glorious angel from Heaven came
Unto a virtuous maid;
Strange tidings and great news of joy
The humble Mary had.
The humble Mary had.

2. O mortal man, remember well
When Christ our Lord was born'
He was crucified betwixt two thieves
And crowned with the thorn
And crowned with the thorn.

3. O mortal man, remember well
When Christ died on the rood;
'Twas for our sins and wicked ways
Christ shed His precious blood.
Christ shed His precious blood.

4. O mortal man, remember well
When Christ was wrapped in clay;
He was taken to a sepulcher
Where no man ever lay
Where no man ever lay.

5. God bless the mistress of this house
With gold chain round her breast;
Where e'er her body sleeps or wakes,
Lord send her soul to rest,
Lord send her soul to rest.

6. God bless the master of this house
With happiness beside;
Where e'er his body rides or walks,
Lord Jesus be his guide.
Lord Jesus be his guide.

7. God bless your house, your children too,
Your cattle and your store;
The Lord increase you day by day,
And give you more and more.
And give you more and more.
