Proface, welcome, well come, For now is born a Child of grace Who for us men our flesh doth take. This holy time of Christmas All woe and sin we should release And cast away all heaviness. Then hasten all and enter We welcome all that now appear His loving grace shall ye find here. Well come be this new year And look ye all be of good cheer The Lord our God be with us here.
