The Holly And The Ivy
The holly and the ivy ...When they are both full grown
The holly bears a blossom ... As white as a lily flower
And Mary bore sweet Jesus Christ ...To be our sweet Saviour
The rising of the sun ... And the running of the deer
The playing of the merry organ ... Sweet singing in the choir
Sweet singing in the choir.

The holly bears a berry ... As red as any blood
And Mary bore sweet Jesus Christ ... To do poor sinners good
The rising of the sun ... And the running of the deer
The playing of the merry organ ... Sweet singing in the choir
Sweet singing in the choir

The rising of the sun ....And the running of the deer,.........
The playing of the merry organ .... Sweet singing in the choir.............

The holly bears a prickle ... As sharp as any thorn;
And Mary bore sweet Jesus Christ ...
On Christmas Day in the morn.
The rising of the sun ... And the running of the deer
The playing of the merry organ ... Sweet singing in the choir

The rising of the sun ... And the running of the deer
The playing of the merry organ ... Sweet singing in the choir
Sweet singing in the choir
