Word From An Old Spanish Carol lyrics

Shall I tell you who will come
To Bethlehem on Christmas morn
Who will kneel gently down
Before the lord, newborn?

One small fish from the river
With scales of red, red gold
One wild bee from the heather
One grey lamb from the fold

One ox from the high pasture
One black bull from the herd
One goatling from the far hills
One white, white bird

One large fish from the sea
One small fish from the river,
Too shiny to behold
With scales of red, red gold
One tame moth from a tree
One wild bee from the heather
Sable stoled
One grey lamb from the fold
One colt from greet meadows
One ox from the high pasture
One bear cub fat and furred
One black bull from the herd
One goatling
And one goatling from the far hills
One white, white bird
One white, white bird

And many children
God gave them grace
Bringing tall candles
To light Mary's face

Shall I tell you
One small fish from the river
Who will come
With scales of red and gold
To Bethlehem
One wild bee from the heather
On Christmas morn
One grey lamb from the fold
Who will kneel them gently down
One ox from the high pasture
Before the lord, newborn?
One black bull from the herd

One goatling from the forest
One white, white bird
White bird
White bird
(White bird)
White bird
White, white bird
(White bird)
(White, white bird)
White, white bird
