Ditchling Carol = 180 Verse 4 3 Chorus 2 2 Your homes are within summer smile But oh remember gentles gay, For you who bask in fortunes ray The year is all a holiday, The poor have only Christmas (Chorus) Be merry all, be merry all, with holly deck the festive hall, Prepare the song, the feast, the hall, to welcome merry Christmas. When you with velvets mantled o’er Defy December’s tempest roar O spare one garment from your store To clothe the poor at Christmas (Chorus) From blazing loads of fuel awhile O spare one faggot from your pile To warm the poor at Christmas (Chorus) When you the costly banquet deal To guests who never famine feel O spare one morsel from your meal To feed the poor at Christmas (Chorus) When gen’rous wine your care controls And gives new joy to happier souls O spare one goblet from your bowls To cheer the poor at Christmas (Chorus) So shall each note of mirth appear More sweet to heaven than praise or prayer And angels in their carols there Shall bless the poor at Christmas (Chorus) www.abcnotation.com/tunes
