Vanessa Williams - The Holly and the Ivy Lyrics

The Holly and the Ivy

The holly and the ivy,When they are both full grown,Of all the trees that are in the wood,The holly wears the crown.[Chorus:]O the rising of the sun,The running of the deer,The playing of the merry organ,Sweet singing in the choirSweet singing in the choir.The holly bears a blossomAs white as lily flowerAnd Mary bore sweet Jesus ChristTo be our sweet Saviour[Chorus]The holly bears a berryAs red as any bloodAnd Mary bore sweet Jesus ChristTo do poor sinners good.[The Holly and the Ivy lyrics on http://www.elyricsworld.com][Chorus]The holly bears a prickleAs sharp as any thornAnd Mary bore sweet Jesus ChristOn Christmas day in the morn[Chorus]The holly bears a barkAs bitter as any gallAnd Mary bore sweet Jesus ChristFor to redeem us all.[Chorus]The holly and the ivy,When they are both full grown,Of all the trees that are in the wood,The holly wears the crown.[Chorus]
