?. A carol [sung text not yet checked]

Fling out, fling out your windows wide 
I bring you joy this Christmas-tide :
To-day is born in Bethlehem 
A son of royal David's stem : 
Then sing and rest you satisfied --
In excelsis gloria ! 
"Where is the royal Babe arrayed?"
Lo ! He is in a manger laid ;
The Lord of life an ox's guest --
But warm He lies on Mary's breast 
Then sing and rest you undismayed.
