Cherry Tree Carol Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

When Joseph was an old man, an old man was he
He married Virgin Mary, the Queen of Galilee
He married Virgin Mary, the Queen of Galilee

Mary and Joseph walk through an orchid green
There were berries and cherries as thick as might be seen
There were berries and cherries as thick as might be seen

And Mary said to Joseph, so meek and so mild
"Joseph, gather me some cherries for I am with child"
"Joseph, gather me some cherries for I am with child"

And Joe flew in anger, in anger flew he
Let the father of the baby gather cherries for thee
Let the father of the baby gather cherries for thee

Then up spoke Baby Jesus from in Mary's womb
"Bend down the tallest tree that my mother might have some"
"Bend down the tallest tree that my mother might have some"

And bent down tallest branch till it touched Mary's hand
Cried she, "Oh look, thou Joseph, I have cherries by command"
Cried she, "Oh look, thou Joseph, I have cherries by command"
