Huron Carol

 

Last year while looking at your array of Christmas/Winter music, I was intrigued by the Huron Carol and did some research.  I have re-written the English lyrics to more closely reflect a direct translation from the original language.  I have attached it here for you.   I hope you enjoy it.

1
Take courage, all who walk the earth,
for Jesus Christ is come,
The devil
s reign is now destroyed,
his hold on us undone.
And listen not to what he says,
your souls prepare for other ways,

Jesus indeed is born,
Jesus is born, Jesous ahatonhia.

2
The Choirs of Heaven sing above,
their Message clear and strong,
They come to tell us to rejoice,
and celebrate the song,
For Mary now has given birth,
 Rejoice all people on the earth,

Jesus indeed is born,
Jesus is born, Jesous ahatonhia.

3
Three elders, came, from far off lands
when Tichion, the star,
 on the horizon had appeared
and bid them travel far.
As Jesus spoke “Come to me here”
the star, it beckoned them draw near.

Jesus indeed is born,
Jesus is born, Jesous ahatonhia.

4
The star had stopped so they could find.

the place where Jesus lay
And, when they saw how good he was
they shouted out, “Hurray!”

Annointing Him and bowing low
they blessed His Name, let all earth know

Jesus indeed is born,
Jesus is born, Jesous ahatonhia.

5
So let us give our praise to Him
and glorify His name,
O worship Him. To show us God’s great love is why He came.
God’s will is that we all may be,
glad members of His family,

Jesus indeed is born,

Jesus is born, Jesous ahatonhia.
