Testo della canzone All You That Are To Mirth Inclined – Christmas Songs
All you that are to mirth inclin’d
Consider well and bear in mind
What our good God for us hath done
In sending his beloved Son.

And to redeem our souls from thrall,
He is the Saviour of us all.

Let all your songs and praises be
Unto his Heavenly Majesty,
And evermore among your mirth
Remember Christ our Saviour’s birth. Chorus

The five and twentieth of December,
Good cause have you for to remember,
In Bethlehem upon this morn
There was our blessed Saviour born. Chorus

The night before that happy tide
The spotless Virgin, and her guide,
Went long time seeking up and down
To find them lodging in the town. Chorus

And mark how all things came to pass,
The inns and lodging so filled was,
That they could have no room at all,
but in a silly oxes stall. Chorus

That night the Virgin Mary mild
Was safe delivered of a Child,
According unto Heaven’s decree
Man’s sweet salvation for to be. Chorus

Near Bethlehem did Shepherds keep
Their herds and flocks, and feeding sheep,
To whom God’s Angels did appear,
Which put the Shepherds in great fear. Chorus

Prepare and go, the Angel said,
To Bethlehem, be not afraid;
There shall you see this blessed morn,
The princely babe, sweet Jesus, born. Chorus

With thankful hearts and joyful mind,
The Shepherds went this babe to find,
And as the heavenly Angel told,
They did our Saviour Christ to behold. Chorus

Within a manger was he laid,
The Virgin Mary by him stay’d,
Attending on the Lord of life,
Being both mother, maid, and wife. Chorus

Three Eastern Wise men from afar,
Directed by a glorious Star,-acapo
