Traditional, collected in 1905 from a Mr Carter of King’s Lynn, Norfolk, arranged Katy Lavinia Cooper.

lyrics

Old Joseph and his wedded wife,
Together as they met,
Betwixt them both they ne’er shall part,
How happy they may be.

No mortal man can remember well
When Christ our lord was born;
He was crucified between two thieves
And crownèd with the thorns.

No mortal man can remember well
When Christ died on the rood;
It was for we and our wickedness
Christ shed his precious blood.

No mortal man can remember well
When Christ was wrappèd in clay;
He was buried in a new sepulchre
Where no man ever lay.

God bless the master of this house
With happiness beside;
And where he walks or where he rides
Lord Jesus be his guide.

God bless the mistress of this house
With gold chain round her breast;
Wherever she weeps or where she sleeps
Lord send her soul to rest.

Gold bless your house, your children too,
Your cattle and your store;
The Lord increase you day by day
And send you more and more.
