.The Friendly Beasts

.The Friendly Beasts

Robert Davis

Jesus our brother, kind and good
Was humbly born in a stable rude
And the friendly beasts around Him stood
Jesus our brother, kind and good

‘I,’ said the donkey, shaggy and brown
‘I carried His mother up hill and down
I carried her safely to Bethlehem town'
‘I,’ said the donkey, shaggy and brown

‘I,’ said the cow all white and red
‘I gave Him my manger for His bed
I gave Him my hay to pillow His head’
‘I,’ said the cow all white and red

‘I,’ said the sheep with curly horn
‘I gave Him my wool for His blanket warm
He wore my coat on Christmas morn’
‘I,’ said the sheep with curly horn

‘I,’ said the dove from the rafters high
‘I cooed Him to sleep so He would not cry
We cooed Him to sleep, my mate and I’
‘I,’ said the dove from the rafters high

Thus every beast by some good spell
In the stable dark was glad to tell
Of the gift he gave Emmanuel
The gift he gave Emmanuel

‘I,’ was glad to tell
Of the gift he gave Emmanuel
The gift he gave Emmanuel
Jesus our brother, kind and good

12 Days Of Christmas

12 Days Of Christmas

On the first day of Christmas
My true love sent to me
A partridge in a pear tree

On the second day of Christmas
My true love sent to me
Two turtle doves and
A partridge in a pear tree

 

On the third day of Christmas
My true love sent to me
Three French hens
Two turtle doves and
A partridge in a pear tree

On the forth day of Christmas
My true love sent to me
Four calling birds
Three French hens
Two turtle doves and
A partridge in a pear tree

On the fifth day of Christmas
My true love sent to me
Five golden rings
Four calling birds
Three French hens
Two turtle doves and
A partridge in a pear tree

On the sixth day of Christmas
My true love sent to me
Six geese a-laying
Five golden rings
Four calling birds
Three French hens
Two turtle doves and
A partridge in a pear tree

On the seventh day of Christmas
My true love sent to me
Seven swans a-swimming
Six geese a-laying
Five golden rings
Four calling birds
Three French hens
Two turtle doves and
A partridge in a pear tree

On the eighth day of Christmas
My true love sent to me
Eight maids a-milking
Seven swans a-swimming

A partridge in a pear tree

Two turtle doves and
A partridge in a pear tree

On the eleventh day of Christmas
My true love sent to me
Eleven pipers piping
Ten lords a-leaping
Nine ladies dancing
Eight maids a-milking
Seven swans a-swimming
Six geese a-laying
Five golden rings
Four calling birds
Three French hens
Two turtle doves and
A partridge in a pear tree

 

On the twelfth day of Christmas
My true love sent to me
Twelve drummers drumming
Eleven pipers piping
Ten lords a-leaping
Nine ladies dancing
Eight maids a-milking
Seven swans a-swimming
Six geese a-laying
Five golden rings
Four calling birds
Three French hens
Two turtle doves and
A partridge in a pear tree
