2 At Bethlem in Jewry a city there was 5 The King of all kings to this world being brought,
Where Joseph and Mary together did pass, Small store of fine linen to wrap him was sought;
And there to be taxed with many one moe, But when she had swaddled her young son so sweet,
For Cæsar commanded the same should be so: Within an ox manger she laid him to sleep:
Aye and therefore be merry, etc. Aye and therefore be merry, etc.

3 But when they had entered the city so fair, 6 Then God sent an Angel from Heaven so high,
A number of people so mighty was there, To certain poor Shepherds in fields where they lie,
That Joseph and Mary, whose substance was small, And bade them no longer in sorrow to stay,
Could find in the inn there no lodging at all: Because that our Saviour was born on this day:
Aye and therefore be merry, etc. Aye and therefore be merry, etc.

4 Then were they constrained in a stable to lie, 7 Then presently after the Shepherds did spy
Where horses and asses they used to tie; A number of Angels that stood in the sky;
Their lodging so simple they took it no scorn; They joyfully talked and sweetly did sing,
But against the next morning our Saviour was born: To God be all glory, our heavenly King:
Aye and therefore be merry, etc. Aye and therefore be merry, etc.
