HALSWAY CAROL /HALSWAY SCHOTTISCHE
 (Words Iain Frisk; Music Nigel Eaton)

Lo for the tiding of the Long Night Moon
Let the sunrise call about the morning soon
Short is the biding of the fading light
Sing for the coming of the longest night

North wind will tell us what we need to know
When the stars are shining on the midnight snow
All of the branches have been turned to white
Sing for the coming of the longest night

A winter day, the summer grass turned hay
Frost in the field ‘ til dawn of May
A summer’s light never shone as great or as bright
So dance in the shadows of a winter’s night

Lo for the tiding of the Long Night Moon
May the harvest last until the springtime bloom
Home is our comfort at the winter’s height
Sing for the coming of the longest night

All of the colours of the sunrise sky
Shine a light upon us, as day goes by
Sunsetting shadows fading out of sight
Sing for the coming of the longest night

A winter day, the summer grass turned hay
Frost in the field ‘ til dawn of May
A summer’s light never shone as great or as bright
So dance in the shadows of a winter’s night
