The First Tree In The Greenwood (The Sans Day Carol)

This song is by Celtic Woman and appears on the Special edition of Home For Christmas (2012).

Now the holly bears a berry as white as the milk
And Mary bore Jesus, who was wrapped up in silk

And Mary bore sweet Jesus Christ, our Saviour for to be
And the first tree in the greenwood, it was the holly
Holly, holly
And the first tree in the greenwood, it was the holly

Now the holly bears a berry as green as the grass
And Mary bore Jesus, who died on the cross

And Mary bore sweet Jesus Christ, our Saviour for to be
And the first tree in the greenwood, it was the holly
Holly, holly
And the first tree in the greenwood, it was the holly

Now the holly bears a berry as black as the coal
And Mary bore Jesus, who died for us all

And Mary bore sweet Jesus Christ, our Saviour for to be
And the first tree in the greenwood, it was the holly
Holly, holly
And the first tree in the greenwood, it was the holly

Now the holly bears a berry, as blood is it red
Then trust we our Saviour, who rose from the dead

And Mary bore sweet Jesus Christ, our Saviour for to be
And the first tree in the greenwood, it was the holly
Holly, holly
And the first tree in the greenwood, it was the holly
