Good King Wenceslas looked out On the feast of Stephen When the snow lay round about Deep and crisp and even Brightly shone the moon that night Though the frost was cruel When a poor man came in sight Gath’ring winter fuel.

Bring me flesh and bring me wine Bring me pine logs hither Thou and I will see him dine When we bear him thither
