1 Nowell! Nowell! Good news I tell,
And eke a wonder story;
A virgin mild hath born a child,
Jesus the King of glory.
2 Ave Marie! O well is thee,
Thou daughter born of Anna.
Before thy Son, that holy One,
Archangels sang Osanna.
3 Then praise be sung and bells be rung,
To greet this kindly stranger;
Th’Ancient of Days, mankind to raise,
Abhorreth not the manger.
