The Zither Carol



Girls and boys, leave your toys, make no noise,
Kneel at his crib and worship him.
For this shrine, child divine, is the sign, our Saviour's here.

Alleluia the church bells ring, Alleluia the Angels sing,
Alleluia from everything all must draw near.

On that day, far away, Jesus lay,
Angels were watching round his head.
Holy child, Mother mild, undefiled, we sing your praise.

Alleluia the church bells ring, Alleluia the Angels sing,
Alleluia from everything all must draw near.

Shepherds came at the fame of your name,
Angels their guide to Bethlehem.
In that place, saw your face filled with grace, stood at your door.

Alleluia the church bells ring, Alleluia the Angels sing,
Alleluia from everything all must draw near.
