Traditional Cornish, Sans Day Carol

Lyrics

1. Now the holly she bears a berry as white as the milk,
And Mary she bore Jesus, who was wrapped up in silk

Chorus: And Mary she bore Jesus our Saviour for to be,
And the first tree that's in the greenwood, it was the holly.

Holly! Holly!
And the first tree that's in the greenwood, it was the holly!

2. Now the holly she bears a berry as green as the grass,
And Mary she bore Jesus, who died on the cross

3. Now the holly she bears a berry as black as the coal,
And Mary she bore Jesus, who died for us all:

4. Now the holly she bears a berry, as blood is it red,
Then trust we our Saviour, who rose from the dead
