King Herod and the Cock (arr.1962)
The Wise Men soon espied it,And told the King anighThat a Princely Babe was born that night,No King shall e'er destroy.
If this be the truth, King Herod said,That thou hast told to me,That the roasted cock that stands in the dishShall crow full senses three.
O the cock soon thrusted and feathered well,By the work of God's own hand,And he did crow full senses threeIn the dish where he did stand.
