Past Three O'Clock

Past three o'clock,
And a cold frosty morning,
Past three o'clock,
Good morrow masters all.
  1. Born is a Baby,
    Gentle as may be,
    Son of the Eternal
    Father supernal.
    Past three o'clock...
  2. Seraph choir singeth,
    Angel bell ringeth,
    Hark how they rime it,
    Time it and chime it!
    Past three o'clock...
  3. Mid earth rejoices,
    Hearing such voices.
    Ne'ertofore so well,
    Carolling ‘Nowell!’
    Past three o'clock...
  4. Hinds, o'er the pearly,
    Dewy lawn early,
    Seek the high Stranger,
    Laid in the manager.
    Past three o'clock...
  5. Cheese from the dairy
    Bring they for Mary,
    And, not for money,
    Butter and honey.
    Past three o'clock...
  6. Light out of star-land
    Leadeth from far land
    Princes, to meet Him,
    Worship and greet Him.
    Past three o'clock...
  7. Myrrh from full coffer,
    Incense they offer;
    Nor is the golden
    Nugget withholden.
    Past three o'clock...
  8. Thus they: "I pray you,
    Up Sirs, nor stay you,
    Till ye confess Him
    Likewise, and bless Him."
    Past three o'clock...
