Advent song for December 17: Hajej Nynej Jezisku, Bohemia

This Czech carol has made it into English under another name, although we don’t tend to sing it at quite the clip these of these singers. It’s another one I’m going to make you listen to rather than telling you the English words – I was going to give you a clue by providing a direct translation of the title, but it turns out the internet is rubbish at Czech. I can tell you that ‘Jezisku’ means ‘baby Jesus’, but you could probably have worked that out for yourself, and if you can guess the usual English name for it from that, you win a mince pie.
