    Lyrics

    The holly and the ivy,
    When they are both full grown
    Of all the trees that are in the wood
    The holly bears the crown
    O the rising of the sun
    And the running of the deer
    The playing of the merry organ
    Sweet singing of the choir

    The holly bears a blossom
    As white as lily flower
    And Mary bore sweet Jesus Christ
    To be our sweet Saviour
    O the rising of the sun
    And the running of the deer
    The playing of the merry organ
    Sweet singing of the choir

    The holly bears a berry
    As red as any blood
    And Mary bore sweet Jesus Christ
    To do poor sinners good
    O the rising of the sun
    And the running of the deer
    The playing of the merry organ
    Sweet singing of the choir

    The holly bears a prickle
    As sharp as any thorn;
    And Mary bore sweet Jesus Christ
    On Christmas Day in the morn.
    O the rising of the sun
    And the running of the deer
    The playing of the merry organ
    Sweet singing of the choir

    The holly bears a bark
    As bitter as any gall;
    And Mary bore sweet Jesus Christ
    For to redeem us all.
    O the rising of the sun
    And the running of the deer
    The playing of the merry organ
    Sweet singing of the choir

    The holly and the ivy
    Now both are full well grown,
    Of all the trees that are in the wood,
    The holly bears the crown.
    O the rising of the sun
    And the running of the deer
    The playing of the merry organ
    Sweet singing of the choir
