  • Here we come a-wassailing

    An English Folk Christmas*

    Here we come a-wassailing ist auch als 'Here we come a-caroling' bekannt. Das Weihnachtslied entstand ca. 1850 und wird in England auch gern zu Silvester gesungen. Es handelt vom Wassailing.

    Liedtext: Here we come a-wassailing

    Here we come a-wassailing

    Among the leaves so green;

    Here we come a-wand'ring

    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.


    We are not daily beggars

    That beg from door to door;

    But we are neighbours' children,

    Whom you have seen before.


    Call up the butler of this house,

    Put on his golden ring.

    Let him bring us up a glass of beer,

    And better we shall sing.


    We have got a little purse

    Of stretching leather skin;

    We want a little of your money

    To line it well within.


    Bring us out a table

    And spread it with a cloth;

    Bring us out a mouldy cheese,

    And some of your Christmas loaf.


    God bless the master of this house

    Likewise the mistress too,

    And all the little children

    That round the table go.


    Good master and good mistress,

    While you're sitting by the fire,

    Pray think of us poor children

    Who are wandering in the mire.


    Im Zentrum des Weihnachtslieds stehen traditionelle Weihnachtsbräuche (Christmas Traditions) wie Wassailing und Carol Singing.

    Die Wassail Bowl ist ein klassisches englisches Weihnachtsgetränk.
