A Christmas Carol

Long time ago in primary school our teacher who was my aunt (MHSRIP) taught us this song. . .

As you know in primary school tukiskia jina/neno/word/term mpya that became your nick name, so my late late aunt became Wenslass.
Which nicknames did you give your teachers and why?
Good King Wenceslas
The words to the carol “Good King
Wenceslas” were written by John Mason
Neale and published in 1853, the music
originates in Finland 300 years earlier.
This Christmas carol is unusual as there
is no reference in the lyrics to the
nativity. Good King Wenceslas was the
king of Bohemia in the 10th century.
Good King Wenceslas : Lyrics
Play Music !
Good King Wenceslas looked out
On the feast of Stephen
When the snow lay round about
Deep and crisp and even
Brightly shone the moon that night
Though the frost was cruel
When a poor man came in sight
Gath’ring winter fuel
“Hither, page, and stand by me
If thou know’st it, telling
Yonder peasant, who is he?
Where and what his dwelling?”
“Sire, he lives a good league hence
Underneath the mountain
Right against the forest fence
By Saint Agnes’ fountain.”
“Bring me flesh and bring me wine
Bring me pine logs hither
Thou and I will see him dine
When we bear him thither.”
Page and monarch forth they went
Forth they went together
Through the rude wind’s wild lament
And the bitter weather
“Sire, the night is darker now
And the wind blows stronger
Fails my heart, I know not how,
I can go no longer.”
“Mark my footsteps, my good page
Tread thou in them boldly
Thou shalt find the winter’s rage
Freeze thy blood less coldly.”
In his master’s steps he trod
Where the snow lay dinted
Heat was in the very sod
Which the Saint had printed
Therefore, Christian men, be sure
Wealth or rank possessing
Ye who now will bless the poor
Shall yourselves find blessing
