about

The Paper Janes, Em McKeever, Battleshy Youths, and Friends' rendition of a Christmas classic.

lyrics

The holly and the ivy,
When they are both full grown
Of all the trees that are in the wood
The holly wears the crown

The rising of the sun
And the running of the deer
The playing of the merry organ
Sweet singing of the choir

The holly bears a blossom
As white as lily flower
And Mary bore sweet Jesus Christ
To be our sweet Saviour

The holly bears a berry
As red as any blood
And Mary bore sweet Jesus Christ
To do poor sinners good
