Here we go a wassailing
Among the leaves so green
Here we come a wandering
So fair to be seen

Love and joy come to you
And to you your wassail too
And God bless you and send you a happy New Year
And God send you a happy New Year

Our wassail cup is made
Of the rosemary tree
And so is your beer
Of the best barley

Love and joy come to you
And to you your wassail too
And God bless you and send you a happy New Year
And God send you a happy New Year

We are not daily beggars
That beg from door to door
But we are neighbors' children
Whom you have seen before

Love and joy come to you
And to you your wassail too
And God bless you and send you a happy New Year
And God send you a happy New Year

Good Master and good Mistress
As you sit by the fire
Pray think of us poor children
Are wandering in the mire

Love and joy come to you
And to you your wassail too
And God bless you and send you a happy New Year
And God send you a happy New Year

We have a little purse
Made of ratching leather skin
We want some of your small change
To line it well within

Love and joy come to you
And to you your wassail too
And God bless you and send you a happy New Year
And God send you a happy New Year

Call up the Butler of this house
Put on his golden ring
Let him bring us a glass of beer
And the better we shall sing

Love and joy come to you
And to you your wassail too
And God bless you and send you a happy New Year
And God send you a happy New Year

Bring us out a table
And spread it with a cloth
Bring us out a moldy cheese
And some of your Christmas loaf

Love and joy come to you
And to you your wassail too
And God bless you and send you a happy New Year
And God send you a happy New Year

God bless the Master of this house
Likewise the Mistress too
And all the little children
That round the table go

Love and joy come to you
And to you your wassail too
And God bless you and send you a happy New Year
And God send you a happy New Year
