FOR CHRISTMAS EVE.
The Lord at first had Adam made
Out of the dust and clay ; And in his nostrils breathed life,
E'en as the Scriptures say; And then in Eden's Paradise
He placed him to dwell, That he within it should remain, To dress, and keep it well.
Now let good Christians all begin
An holy life to live, And to rejoice and merry be, For this is Christmas Eve.
And thus within the garden he
Commanded was to stay; And unto him in commandment
These words the Lord did say: The fruit that in the garden grows
To thee shall be for meat, Except the tree in the midst thereof,
Of which thou shalt not eat.
Now let good, &c. For in that day thou dost it touch,
Or dost it then come nigh,
