From the recording Christmas with Conrad
What shall we give to the child of the mother?
What can we bring that will give him delight?
Bring to him raisins and kingly abundance,
Bring him the offerings he richly deserves.
What shall we bring to the child of the mother?
What shall we bring to the Beautiful Boy?
Raisins and honey and olives and walnuts,
Raisins and honey and figs that are ripe.
What shall we do if the figs do not ripen?
What shall we do if the figs are still green?
Gifts that we offer the child should be perfect;
Mild for a baby, yet fit for a King.
