Sussex Carol

Sussex Carol

 On christmas night all christians sing
 to hear the news the angels bring
 to hear the news the angels bring
 news of great joy
 news of great mirth
 news of our merciful King's birth

 When Sin departs before thy grace
 Then life and health come in its place
 Then life and health come in its place
 Angels and men with joy may sing
 All for to see the newborn King

 From out of the darkness we have light
 which made the angels sing the night
 Which made the angels sing the night
 Glory to God and Peace to men
 Now and forever more A _ men

collected from Mrs. Verall, Monks Gate, Sussex
 harmonization by R. Vaughan Williams, 1919
