The Sinner's Redemption
|Come all you true good Christians→|
|an English folk carol sometimes called "All you that are to mirth inclined". This regional variant was collected in the early part of the 20th century from a Mrs. Gentie Phillips, of Tysoe, Warwickshire|
Cecil Sharp's note
Mrs. Phillips could remember no more than the first stanza; the remaining stanzas have been copied from a broadside. Under the title "All you that are to mirth inclined" the carol is printed, words and tune, by Bramley and Stainer, R. R. Chope and Davies Gilbert; words only, by Sandys and many broadside printers. The tune, which is often used by carol singers (see Folk-Song Society's Journal, IV, pp. 15, 17 et seq.), is a variant of "Searching for Lambs" (Folk-Songs from Somerset. No. 96).
