The Holly Bears a Berry (Sans Day Carol)

Now the Holly bears a berry as white as the milk
And Mary bore Jesus, who was wrapped up in silk.

cho: And Mary bore Jesus Christ our Saviour to be
     And the first tree in the greenwood, it was the holly.
     Holly, holly,
     And the first tree in the greenwood it was the holly.

Now the Holly bears a berry as green as the grass
And Mary bore Jesus, who died on the cross.

Now the Holly bears a berry as black as the coal
And Mary bore Jesus, who died for us all.

Now the Holly bears a berry as blood is it red
Then trust we our Saviour who rose from the dead.

note: From the Oxford Book of Carols. Collected in Cornwall. St.
     Day was a Breton saint.RG
