On The Tenth Day Of Christmas, My True Love Gave To Me.....

.......Good Christian Men Rejoice/In Dulci Jubilo.
The words to this song were written in the 1850's but the melody dates back to the fourteenth century! It is said to have made even the most pious of men dance for joy when they heard it sung; but that is simply legend.
  The tune was first set to a Latin poem called  "In Dulci Jubilo" (In Sweet Rejoicing) but is now more commonly known in America as the song, "Good Christian Men Rejoice".  Written by John M. Neale.
  Enjoy the song, This video was the best I could get that didn't have an advertisement before but had both songs!  Have a wonderful Lord's day.
                    

Good Christian men, rejoice with heart and soul, and voice;
Give ye heed to what we say: Jesus Christ is born today;
Ox and ass before Him bow; and He is in the manger now.
Christ is born today! Christ is born today!

Good Christian men, rejoice, with heart and soul and voice;
Now ye hear of endless bliss: Jesus Christ was born for this!
He has opened the heavenly door, and man is blest forevermore.
Christ was born for this! Christ was born for this!

Good Christian men, rejoice, with heart and soul and voice;
Now ye need not fear the grave: Jesus Christ was born to save!
Calls you one and calls you all, to gain His everlasting hall.
Christ was born to save! Christ was born to save!
