To Drive The Cold Winter Away Balulalow
Credits: Traditional
Appears On: To Drive The Cold Winter Away
Language: Old English


I come from hevin which to tell
The best nowells that e'er befell
To you thir tythings trew I bring
And I will of them say and sing

This day to you is born ane child
Of Marie meik and virgin mild
That bliss it bairn bening and kind
Sall you rejoice baith hart and mind

Lat us rejoyis and be blyth
And with the Hydris go full swyth
And see what God of his grace hes done
Throu Christ to bring us to his throne

My saull and life stand up and see
Wha lyis in ane cribbe of tree
What babe is that, sae gude and fair
It is Christ, God's Son and Air

Oh my deir hart, yung Jesus sweit
Prepair thy creddil in my spreit
And I sall rock thee in my hart
And never mair fra thee depart

But I sall praise thee evermoir
With sangis sweit unto thy gloir
The kneis of my hart sall I bow
And sing that rycht Balulalow
