Bài hát The Wexford Carol - Ní Mhaolchatha
Good people all, this Christmas-time, / Consider well and bear in mind
What our good God for us has done, / In sending His beloved Son.
With Mary holy we should pray / To God with love this Christmas Day:
In Bethlehem upon that morn / There was a blessed Messiah born.
Near Bethlehem did shepherds keep / Their flocks of lambs and feeding sheep;
To whom God’s angels did appear, / Which put the shepherds in great fear.
“Prepare and go,” the angels said, / “To Bethlehem, be not afraid;
For there you’ll find, this happy morn, / A princely Babe, sweet Jesus born.”
With thankful heart and joyful mind, / The shepherds went the Babe to find,
And as God’s angel had foretold, / They did our Saviour Christ behold.
Within a manger He was laid, / And by his side the Virgin Maid,
As long foretold, there was a blessed Messiah born
