Cecil Sharp's note
Mr. Thomas could only remember the words of the first stanza, which are given in the text exactly as he sang them to me. As I have been unable to trace the carol to which these lines belong I have added two stanzas from another and very similar set of words, consisting of three verses, entitled "The Lamb", which I found on a broadside by Pitts. Except for a general likeness I have no reason to connect this carol with that which Mr. Thomas gave me.
