TO DRIVE THE COLD WINTER AWAY Lyrics

When Christmas’s tide comes in like a bride,
With holly and Ivy clad.
Her candles aglow, her mantle of snow,
Shall make our weary hearts glad.
Your door open wide to call her inside
To brighten the gloomy day.!
Our Wassail is blessed, our carols are best
To drive the cold winter away.

This time of the year is spent in good cheer
And friends together do meet
To sit by the fire, with magic conspire
To make their holidays sweet.
The lady and lord with circle and ward
Will bid the good spirits stay!
And at our behest they’ll banish the rest
To drive the cold winter away.

Inst……..

So these are the days we joyfully praise
Despite the darkening year.
We trust the light that shines in the night
Dispels all sorrow and fear.
The stars in the sky that sparkle on high
Will render the long night gay!
And here’s the good dame, plum pudding aflame
To drive the cold winter away.
