Sans Day Carol lyrics:

Now the holly bears a berry
As white as the milk,
And Mary bore Jesus
All wrapped up in silk.

Chorus:
And Mary bore Jesus
Our Saviour for to be
And the first tree in the greenwood
It was the holly
Holly! Holly!
And the first tree in the greenwood
It was the holly!

Now the holly bears a berry
As green as the grass
And Mary bore Jesus
Who died on the cross.

Chorus:
And Mary bore Jesus
Our Saviour for to be
And the first tree in the greenwood
It was the holly
Holly! Holly!
And the first tree in the greenwood
It was the holly!

Now the holly bears a berry
As black as the coal
And Mary bore Jesus
Who died for us all.

Chorus:
And Mary bore Jesus
Our Saviour for to be
And the first tree in the greenwood
It was the holly
Holly! Holly!
And the first tree in the greenwood
It was the holly!

Now the holly bears a berry
As red as the blood
Then trust we our Saviour
Who rose from the dead.

Chorus:
And Mary bore Jesus
Our Saviour for to be
And the first tree in the greenwood
It was the holly
Holly! Holly!
And the first tree in the greenwood
It was the holly!
