"Bring a Torch, Jeanette, Isabella"


       
 
1.
Bring a torch, Jeanette, Isabella!
Bring a torch, come hurry and run!
Come and see him good folk in the village,
Jesus is born, and Mary's calling;
Ah! Ah! Beautiful is the mother,
Ah! Ah! Beautiful is her son.
 
       
 
2.
Come and see him, Jeanette, Isabella!
See the baby so gentle and mild.
Softly now for the baby is sleeping,
Angels in Heav'n, their watch are keeping,
Ah! Ah! Beautiful is the mother,
Ah! Ah! Beautiful is her son.
