*notes: My Sunday School teacher taught this carol to her class back when I was four (or five) years old. We sang this for the church on Christmas Sunday back then and the senior kids got to sing Stainers version of the carol later in the Christmas program.

I have always thought on this carol as the one for children (see why in my notes in the first post). As a children's carol the last line of verse one is repeated as a "chorus." The mp3 instrumental music file does this and I found a version of the carol that shows this in: Carols Old And Carols New, Charles L. Hutchins, Boston: The Parish Choir, 1916 hymn #509
