I have been searching for these lyrics for years and just when I mention to my friend that I cannot find them anywhere - up pops this post! Divine? We sang all but the last verse as our music teacher didn’t like the word “gay” - but refused to change it for another word. Didn’t realise the lady who wrote this also wrote my other favourite hymns - When a Knight won his spurs and Lord of all hopefulness. Thank you so much for this thread. Amazing.

Wonderful to read!
I have sung this all my life to myself, but I seem to break into emotion when I try to sing it to others!! It’s so honest, innocent and joyful!
Thankyou to everyone for sharing your memories and all the information about this lovely hymn.

Found these wonderful lyrics just a few weeks ago and passed them onto my sister today. We were children of the 60's but they still taught this wonderful song at our Colwyn Bay primary school. We have lived in Australia for most of our lives and I only remembered the first verse. So happy to see this again after so long. Now if only I can find the Welsh song about the 3 pigs, my lost songs list will be complete! Thank you to the poster of the lyrics.
