18. Eighteenth Carol

 

The snow doth fall

On the cot and hall

On the mansion and the slum;

So soft and white

On this holy night

When angels come.

 

Angels come

From their heavenly home

To the earth with wonderful news

That God most fair

In a stable bare

Was born for Jews.

 

On earth is joy

For the Holy Boy

Is the Saviour of mankind:

And let us then

Give our thanks again

For God so kind!

 

Sung by WAITS in Operetta ‘A stocking for the snowman’
