Lyrics: Anon

Hoary frost bestrews the ground
And the tempests whistle round;
Now we seek the cheerful hearth,
'Tis the time for social mirth.

Stir, O stir, the genial fire,
Tune the harp and strike the lyre;
Let not winter's rage control
The warmer currents of the soul.

Bring the harp and pleasing string;
Here we'll play and here we'll sing.
Merrily, merrily set together,
Fenc'd against the warring weather.
