Here's my favorite epiphany carol--it's hard not to sing it in a never-ending loop. This is a fun version of it, but my favorite is an arrangement for 5-octave (6?) bell choir, which wound up as a genuine encore--at the end of the concert, some little old lady at the back of the sanctuary called out, "What, no encore?" and so they picked that piece to play again. (This might be it; I didn't think at the time to record the composer's name.)

I can't tell how many verses are sung in this version, but here's all four in translation.
