Lyrics

Proface, welcome, well come,
For now is born a Child of grace Who for us men our flesh doth take.
This holy time of Christmas
All woe and sin we should release And cast away all heaviness.
Then hasten all and enter We welcome all that now appear
His loving grace shall ye find here. Well come be this new year
And lo,Ok ye all be of go,Od cheer
​​​​​​​The Lord our God be with us here.
