A Virgin unspotted

A Virgin unspotted, the Prophets foretold
Should bring forth a Saviour, which now you behold.
To be our Redeemer, from death, hell and sin,
Which Adam's transgressions involved us in.
Then let us be merry,
Cast sorrow away,
Our Savior Christ Jesus
Is born on this day.

At Bethlehem city, in Judah, it was
That Joseph and Mary together did pass,
All for to be tax-ed 'twas there that they came,
Since Caesar Augustus commanded the same.
Then let us be merry,
Cast sorrow away,
Our Savior Christ Jesus
Is born on this day.

Now Mary's full time being come, as we find,
She brought forth her First-born to save all mankind;
The Inn being so full for this heavenly guest,
No place could be found for to lay Him to rest.
Then let us be merry,
Cast sorrow away,
Our Savior Christ Jesus
Is born on this day.

Then presently after the shepherds did spy
Vast numbers of angels for to stand in the sky;
How happy they conversed! so sweet did they sing:
All glory and praise to our Heavenly King.
Then let us be merry,
Cast sorrow away,
Our Savior Christ Jesus
Is born on this day.
