Can you name this Carol?

This is fun, because you have to think of other verses, or buried deep in the song, not the usual refrain and/or first verse. I won't post the answers until later. Let's see how ID readers do first.

The cherry tree bowed low down, Bowed low down to the ground

Myrrh to be strewn about his bed, Incense in clouds about his head

In fields where they lay keeping their sheep On a cold winter’s night that was so deep

The little Lord Jesus Laid down His sweet head

Yet in thy dark streets shineth The everlasting Light

The Virgin Mary and Christ were there, On Christmas Day, on Christmas Day

In Bethlehem, in Israel, This blessed Babe was born

Bring me flesh and bring me wine Bring me pine logs hither

Round yon Virgin Mother and Child Holy Infant so tender and mild

His men of might, in his own sight, All children young, to slay

This, this is Christ the King, Whom shepherds guard and angels sing

True God of true God, Light from Light Eternal, Lo, He shuns not the Virgin’s womb

From angels bending near the earth, To touch their harps of gold

And the mountains in reply Echoing their joyous strains

Isaiah ’twas foretold it, The rose I have in mind

Said the shepherd boy to the mighty king, “Do you know what I know?

Prayer and praising, all men raising, Worship Him, God on High

Fall on your knees Oh hear the angel voices

He rules the world with truth and grace, And makes the nations prove

And ransom captive Israel, That mourns in lonely exile here

Bonus: Secular Songs

It’s Christmas time in the city. Ring-a-ling, hear them ring

In the meadow we can build a snowman, Then pretend that he is Parson Brown

O what fun it is to ride In a one-horse open sleigh

I don’t know if there’ll be snow, but have a cup of cheer

What a bright time, it’s the right time To rock the night away
