Let the Revels Reign!

Let the revels reign!

It’s bonny yuletide again.

The mummers lead the way —

Join the grateful play.

The days are growing dark;

The night has won its sway.

But soon the sun returns,

Lighting up our way.

Be merry, be blithe —

Pay winter its tithe.

Remember the light,

And all will be right.
