Good Pagan Folk, Rejoice

(Tune: Good Christian Men, Rejoice)

Good Pagan folk, rejoice
With hear and soul and voice
Give ye heed to what we say
News! News!
Our Lord the Sun is born today
Greet him as the dawn's first light
Bids farewell to dark of night
The Sun returns today
The Sun returns today!

Good Pagan folk, rejoice
With heart and soul and voice
Gather round the Yuletide tree
Peace! Peace!
Hope he brings for you and me
Winter's cold is nearly gone
We wait for spring with joyous song
Our Lord returns to Earth
Our Lord returns to Earth

Good Pagan folk, rejoice
With heart and soul and voice
Praise our Lady, praise her Son
Joy! Joy!
New life they bring to everyone
Dance and sing and merry meet
As the Lord of Light we greet
The Sun returns today
The Sun returns today.
