The Wexford Carol
Near Bethlehem did shepherds keep Their flocks of lambs and feeding sheep; To whom God's angels did appear, Which put the shepherds in great fear. "Arise and go", the angles said. 'To Bethlehem, be not afraid, For there you'll find this happy morn, A princely babe, sweet Jesus born. There were three wise men from afar Directed by a glorious star, And on they wandered night and day Until they came where Jesus lay, And when they came unto that place Where our beloved Messiah was, They humbly laid at his feet, Their gifts of gold and incense sweet.
