In Honor Of The King Of Bliss

Merry Christmas, everyone!

The boar’s head in hand bear I,
Bedeck'd with bays and rosemary.
I pray you, my masters, be merry
    Quot estis in convivio

        Caput apri defero
        Reddens laudes Domino

The boar's head, as I understand,
Is the rarest dish in all this land,
Which thus bedeck'd with a gay garland
    Let us servire cantico.

        Caput apri defero
        Reddens laudes Domino

Our steward hath provided this
In honor of the King of Bliss;
Which, on this day to be served is
    In Reginensi atrio.

        Caput apri defero
        Reddens laudes Domino
