156
If any one should come this way, And enquire for me alone,
Tell them that Jesus passed by, As thou thy seed did sow.
After that there came King Herod, With his train so furiously,
Enquiring of the husbandman, Whether Jesus passed by.
Why, the truth it must be spoke, And the truth it must be known,
For Jesus passed by this way, When my seed was sown.
But now I have it reapen, And some laid on my wain,
Ready to fetch and carry Into my barn again.
Turn back, says the Captain, Your labour and mine's in vain,
It's full three quarters of a year Since he his seed has sown.
So Herod was deceived
By the work of God's own hand, And further he proceeded
Into the Holy Land.
