Christmas Carol

Lambs and little children,
Gather two by two;
Little Lamb and lowly Child
Here is laid for you.
Come to Mary's tender Son,
Worship all, and one by one.

Lights are on His forehead,
Little children, see;
Other stars shall burn there,
Red as stars may be.
Guileless children, for us plead,
Us for whom the Lamb must bleed.

Little lambs, all in a row,
Lay your faces down
Till the Lady Mary stoop
And touch you with her gown.
Little children, laugh and nod,
Gamboling round the Lamb of God.
