Traditional
  1. Here we come a wassailing among the leaves so green,
    Here we come a wandering so fair to be seen.
    Love and joy come to you and to your wassail too
    And God bless you and send you a happy New Year
    And God send you a happy New Year.
  2. We are not daily beggars that beg from door to door,
    We are your neighbor's children whom you have seen before.
    Love and joy come to you and to your wassail too
    And God bless you and send you a happy New Year
    And God send you a happy New Year.
  3. We have got a little purse of stretching leather skin;
    We want a little money to line it well within.
    Love and joy come to you and to your wassail too
    And God bless you and send you a happy New Year
    And God send you a happy New Year.
  4. God bless the master of this house, likewise the mistress, too,
    And all the little children that round the table go.
    Love and joy come to you and to your wassail too
    And God bless you and send you a happy New Year
    And God send you a happy New Year.
  5. Good Master and good Mistress, while you sit by the fire,
    Pray think of us poor children a-wandering in the mire.
    Love and joy come to you and to your wassail too
    And God bless you and send you a happy New Year
    And God send you a happy New Year.
