104
Now to the Lord sing praises,
All you within this place, And with true love and brotherhood
Each other now embrace ; This holy tide of Christmas
All others doth deface.
O tidings, &c.
WHEN ADAM FIRST IN PARADISE.
When Adam first in Paradise
From God's presence did fly, For eating the forbidden fruit
Condemned was to die, And by that fall fell mankind all,
Till God in mercy said, His own dear Son should man become, And Justice should be paid.
To save us all from sin and thrall
When we were left forlorn, All men on earth rejoice with mirth, For Christ this tide was born.
And when fullness of time was come, According to Heav'n's decree,
A glorious Angel was sent down To the Virgin Mary.
