Come sing and dance
Language: English 
From far the Angels draw near,
Eia, Eia;
Sweet is the Day Spring that heals our fear;
Come sing and dance,
Come pipe and play.
Alleluia, Alleluia,
Sing Jesus Christ and Mary dear.
 
A child this day to us is born
Eia, eia;
Sing all ye shepherds, proclaim the morn.
Come sing and dance,
Come pipe and play.
Alleluia, Alleluia,
Sing Jesus Christ and Mary dear.
 
Now all mankind doth say and sing
Eia! Eia!
This is the day of Christ and King.
Come sing and dance,
Come pipe and play.
Alleluia, Alleluia,
Sing Jesus Christ and Mary dear.
