Decking The Halls


Deck the Halls” (originally titled “Deck the Hall“) is a traditional Christmas Carol. The melody is Welsh, dating back to the sixteenth century, and belongs to a winter carol, “Nos Galan”, while the English lyrics, written by the Scottish musician Thomas Oliphant, date to 1862.

Deck the hall with boughs of holly,
‘Tis the season to be jolly,
Fill the meadcup, drain the barrel,
Troul the ancient Yuletide carol,

See the flowing bowl before us,
Strike the harp, and join in chorus:
Follow me in merry measure,
While I sing of beauty’s treasure.

Fast away the old year passes,
Hail the new, ye lads and lasses:
Laughing quaffing all together,
Heedless of the wind and weather.

The English lyrics by Oliphant, as published in 1862
