The Holly Bears a Berry

Lyrics

Oh, the holly she bears a berry
As blood it is red
And Mary she bore Jesus
Who died in our stead.

And Mary she bore Jesus
Our savior for to be
And the first tree that's in the greenwood
It was the holly.

Holly, holly
And the first tree that's in the greenwood
It was the holly.

Oh, the holly she bears a berry
As white as the milk
And Mary she bore Jesus
Who's wrapped up in silk.

And Mary she bore Jesus
Our savior for to be
And the first tree that's in the greenwood
It was the holly.

Holly, holly
And the first tree that's in the greenwood
It was the holly.

Oh, the holly she bears a berry
As green as the grass
And Mary she bore Jesus
Who died on the cross.

And Mary she bore Jesus
Our savior for to be
And the first tree that's in the greenwood
It was the holly.

Holly, holly
And the first tree that's in the greenwood
It was the holly.

Oh, the holly she bears a berry
As black as the coal
And Mary she bore Jesus
Who died for us all.

And Mary she bore Jesus
Our savior for to be
And the first tree that's in the greenwood
It was the holly.

Holly, holly
And the first tree that's in the greenwood
It was the holly.

Yay! First person to comment! My surname's Berry, but because I have included my surname, I can't state my first name. Internet safety! (I have used my first name on all the other comments I have put on this website, though). Also, there's someone at my school, in my year, called Holly Berry. I hope she's younger than me - then I would have the surname first! Hah!
