"Greensleeves" Lyrics
Alas my love you do me wrong,
To cast me off discourteously.
And I have loved you so long,
Delighting in your company.
Greensleeves was my delight,
Greensleeves is all my joy.
Greensleeves is my heart of gold,
And who but my lady Greensleeves.
"What Child Is This" Lyrics

What Child is this who laid to rest,
On Mary’s lap is sleeping?
Whom angels greet with anthems sweet,
While shepherds watch are keeping?
This, this is Christ the King,
Whom shepherds guard and angels sing.
Haste, haste, to bring Him laud,
The Babe, the Son of Mary.
