    Lyrics

    Good King Wenceslas looked out
    On the Feast of Stephen
    When the snow lay round about
    Deep and crisp and even
    Brightly shone the moon that night
    Though the frost was cruel
    When a poor man came in sight
    Gathering winter fuel

    Hither, page, and stand by me,
    If thou knowst it, telling
    Yonder peasant, who is he?
    Where and what his dwelling?
    Sire, he lives a good league hence,
    Underneath the mountain
    Right against the forest fence
    By Saint Agnes fountain.

    Bring me flesh and bring me wine
    Bring me pine logs hither
    Thou and I shall see him dine
    When we bear them thither.
    Page and monarch, forth they went
    Forth they went together
    Through the rude winds wild lament
    And the bitter weather

    Sire, the night is darker now
    And the wind blows stronger
    Fails my heart, I know not how
    I can go no longer.
    Mark my footsteps, good my page
    Tread thou in them boldly
    Thou shall find the winters rage
    Freeze thy blood less coldly.

    In his masters step he trod
    Where the snow lay dinted
    Heat was in the very sod
    Which the Saint had printed
    Therefore, Christian men, be sure
    Wealth or rank possessing
    Ye, who now will bless the poor
    Shall yourselves find blessing.
