Good Cheer!
A carolers' greeting for SATB a cappella
Words and music by Alan Riley Jones

Copyright © Alan Riley Jones, all rights reserved.

We bring good cheer to everyone here,
To our good master, to our good lady,
Come what matters, and come what may,
We say you, Good morrow! Good cheer!

The host of the hall, and revelers all,
We sing you health and we sing you fortune:
All who gather inside this door,
We say you, Good morrow! Good cheer!

Good cheer! Good cheer! to ev'ryone here,
To all we meet on this joyous day;
Come what matters, and come what may,
We say you, Good morrow! Good cheer!

The best, the best, to ev'ry good guest,
Who brings due honor unto the house,
Now hear the greeting that we espouse,
We say you, Good morrow! Good cheer!

To children all, both little and tall,
And all God's creatures, we sing goodwill,
The dog on the carpet, the cat on the sill,
We say you, Good morrow! Good cheer!

Good cheer! Good cheer! The end of the year
Is gone so quickly, is gone away,
The new year comes in another day,
We say you, Good morrow! Good cheer!

Our spirits are high, our voices are dry,
Then pass the cup, and we'll drink your blessing,
Fortune follow you, come what may,
We say you, Good morrow! Good cheer!

Good cheer! Good cheer! Wassail without peer,
We'll sing a toast and be on our way,
God be with you in ev'ry day,
We say you, Good morrow! Good cheer!

Good cheer! Good cheer! to ev'ryone here,
To all we meet on this joyous day;
Come what matters, and come what may,
Pass the cup, and we'll say you, Good cheer! Good cheer!
