Past Three A Clock lyrics:

Chorus:
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 the eternal
Father supernal.

Chorus:
Past three a clock
And a cold frosty morning
Past three a clock
Good morrow, masters all!

Seraph quire singeth
Angel bell ringeth
Hark how they rime it
Time it and chime it.

Chorus:
Past three a clock
And a cold frosty morning
Past three a clock
Good morrow, masters all!

Mid earth rejoices
Hearing such voices
E'er to fore so well
Caroling Nowell.

Chorus:
Past three a clock
And a cold frosty morning
Past three a clock
Good morrow, masters all!

Hinds o'er the pearly
Dewy lawn early
Seek the high Stranger
Laid in the manger.

Chorus:
Past three a clock
And a cold frosty morning
Past three a clock
Good morrow, masters all!

Cheese from the dairy
Bring they for Mary
And, not for money
Butter and honey.

Chorus:
Past three a clock
And a cold frosty morning
Past three a clock
Good morrow, masters all!

Light out of star-land
Leadeth from far land
Princes to meet him
Worship and greet him.

Chorus:
Past three a clock
And a cold frosty morning
Past three a clock
Good morrow, masters all!

Myrrh from full coffer
Incense they offer
Nor is the golden
Nugget withholden.

Chorus:
Past three a clock
And a cold frosty morning
Past three a clock
Good morrow, masters all!

Thus they: I pray you
Up, sirs, nor stay you
Till ye confess him
Likewise and bless him.

Chorus:
Past three a clock
And a cold frosty morning
Past three a clock
Good morrow, masters all!
