Good People All, This Christmastime

This beautiful melody is a traditional Irish tune, and originally would have been performed by two groups of three men, each group taking alternate verses and ornamenting in the traditional Irish style.

Good people all this Christmastime,

Consider well and bear in mind

What our good God for us has done

In sending his beloved Son.

With Mary holy we should pray

To God, with love, this Christmas Day:

In Bethlehem upon that morn

There was a blessed Messiah born.

Come, let us then our tribute pay

To our good God, as well we may,

For all his grace and mercy shown

Through his Son to us, till then unknown;

And when through life we went our way

'Mid trials and sufferings, day by day,

In faith and hope, whate'er befall,

We'll wait in peace his holy call.
