Past Three A Clock

Past Three A Clock
Refrain
Past three a clock, and a cold frosty morning:
Past three a clock, Good morrow, masters all!
Born is a baby, gentle as may be,
Son of th' eternal Father supernal.
Refrain
Seraph quire singeth, Angel bell ringeth;
Hark how they rime it, time it, and chime it.
Refrain
Mid earth rejoices hearing such voices
Ne'ertofore so well carolling Nowell.
Refrain
Hinds o'er the pearly dewy lawn early
Seek the high Stranger laid in the manger.
Refrain
Light out the star-land leadeth from far land.
Princes, to meet him, worship and greet him.
Refrain
Myrrh from full coffer, incense they offer;
Nor is the golden nugget withholden.
Refrain
Thus they: I pray you, up, sirs, nor stay you
'Till ye confess him likewise, and bless him.
