J. Ferguson, 2018) V1. D G D The holly and the ivy, D G A when they are both full grown, G D G A of all the trees that are in the wood D G D the holly bears the crown. V2. The holly bears a blossom, as white as lily flower, and Mary bore sweet Jesus Christ to be our sweet Saviour. V3. The holly bears a berry as red as any blood, and Mary bore sweet Jesus Christ to do poor sinners good. V4. The rising of the sun and the running of the deer, the playing of the merry organ, sweet singing in the choir. V5 The holly and the ivy, when they are both full grown, of all the trees that are in the wood the holly bears the crown.
