I come from hevin [heich] to tell

I come from hevin [heich] to tell
the best nowells that e'er befell.
To you thir tythings trew I bring
and I will of them say and sing.
This day to you is born ane Child
of Marie meik and Virgin mild.
That blissit bairn bening and kind, bening and kind,
sall you rejoyce baith hart and mind.
