May Day Carol

I’ve been a-wandering all the night and the best part of the day,
Now I’m returning home again, I bring you a branch of May.

A branch of May, my love I say, as at your door I stand,
It’s nothing but a sprout, but it’s well budded out
By the work of the Lord’s own hand.

Take a Bible in your hand and read a chapter thru,
And when the day of judgement comes, the Lord will think of you.
In my pocket, I’ve got a purse tied up with a silver string,
All that I do need is a bit of silver to line it well within.

My song is done and I must be gone, I can no longer stay,
God bless you all, both great and small and send you a joyful May!
