The lamb that e’er the world began (Now carol we)
Language: English 
The lamb that e’er the world began
Was sacrificed for sin,
Which for to suck his mother’s milk
This day did first begin.

Now carol us, and carol we,
And Hallelujah sing.
Peace be on earth, good will to men,
Glory to God our King.

The angels’ joy pronounced his birth;
The shepherds ran to look;
A star did guide the pilgrimage
The wise men undertook.

Now carol us, and carol we,
And Hallelujah sing.
Peace be on earth, good will to men,
Glory to God our King.
