1.
It was on Christmas Day
And all in the morning,
Our Saviour was born,
And our Heav'nly King;
"And was not this a joyful thing,
And sweet Jesus they call Him by name."

2.
It was on New Year's Day
And all in the morning,
They circumsised our Saviour
And our Heav'nly King;
"And was not this a joyful thing,
And sweet Jesus they call Him by name."

3.
It was on the Twelth Day
And all in the morn-ing,
The Wise Men were led
To our Heav'nly King;
"And was not this a joyful thing,
And sweet Jesus they call Him by name."

4.
It was on Twentieth Day
And all in the morning,
The Wise Men returned
From our Heav'nly King;
"And was not this a joyful thing,
And sweet Jesus they call Him by name."

5.
It was on Candlemas Day
And all in the morning,
They visited the Temple
With our Heavenly king;
"And was not this a joyful thing,
And sweet Jesus they call Him by name."

6.
It was on Holy Wednesday
And all in the morning
That Judas betrayed
Our dear Heavenly King;
"And was not this a woeful thing
And sweet Jesus we'll call Him by name."

7.
It was on Sheer Thursday,
And all in the morning,
They plaited a crown of thorns,
For our Heavenly King;
"And was not this a woeful thing
And sweet Jesus we'll call Him by name."

8.
It was on Good Friday,
And all in the morning,
They crucified our Saviour,
And our Heavenly King;
"And was not this a woeful thing
And sweet Jesus we'll call Him by name."

9.
It was on Easter Day
And all in the morning
Our Saviour arose,
Our own Heavenly King;
"They did both rise with Him,
And sweet Jesus we'll call Him by name."
