12 Days of Christmas: Day 11

Each of the 12 days of Christmas, a favorite line or two of mine from a Christmas carol will come your way to remind you of these joyful, hopeful carols that help carry us through the year.

Sing We Now of Christmas
(Words: Trad. French Carol; Music: Trad. French carol; harm. by Martin Shaw, 1928)

From the eastern country
came the kings afar,
bearing gifts to Bethlehem,
guided by a star.

Sing we Noel, the King is born, Noel!
Sing we now of Christmas, sing we now Noel!

Gold and myrrh they took there,
gifts of greatest price;
there was never a stable
so like paradise.

Sing we Noel, the King is born, Noel!
Sing we now of Christmas, sing we now Noel!
