St. Stephen was a serving-man|
In Herod's royal hall.
He serv-ed him with meat and wine
That doth to kings befall.
He was serving him with meat, one day,
St. Stephen was a righteous man|
And in his faith was bold,
He was waiting for the birth of Christ
As by the prophets told.
He cast the Boar's head on the floor
Then quickly he went to Herod's room|
And unto him did say,
"I am leaving thee, King Herod,
And will proclaim thy wicked ways."
