“The Cherry-Tree Carol” is a very old and popular Christmas Carol. The song itself is very old, reportedly sung in some form at the Feast of Corpus Christi in the early 15th century.

The Cherry Tree Carol

The versions eventually collected by Francis James Child are thought to be a combination of up to three separate carols that merged through the centuries.

The Cherry Tree Carol – Christmas Carol Lyrics :

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

And one day as they went walking, all in the garden green
There were berries and cherries as thick as may be seen
There were berries and cherries as thick as may be seen

Then 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”

The Joseph 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 out Mary’s womb
“Bow down ye tallest tree that my mother might have some
Bow down ye tallest tree that my mother might have some”

So bent down the tallest tree to touch Mary’s hand
Said she, “Oh look now Joseph, I have cherries at command”
Said she, “Oh look now Joseph, I have cherries at command”

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
