Composed by Benjamin Britten, adapted from a 16th C carol set by William Cornysh. From A Ceremony of Carols, written in 1942 while at sea between the US and England.


Pleasure it is to hear iwis the Birdès sing,
The deer in the dale, the sheep in the vale,
the corn springing.

<This> purveyance For sustenance.
It is for <us>.

Then we always to <it> give praise,
And thank <it> then

(lyrics altered from "god" and "him" to <this> and <us>)
