This old French Christmas melody is set in a lively new arrangement.

Text

Masters in this hall, hear ye news today.
Brought from over the sea and ever I you pray.
Refrain:
Nowell, nowell, nowell, nowell sing we clear!
Holpen are all folk on Earth, born is Godes Son so dear!
Nowell, nowell, nowell, nowell sing we loud!
God today hath poor folk raised and cast a-down the proud.

Shepherds many an one sat among the sheep,
No man spake more word than they had been asleep.
Refrain

Then to Bethlem town, we went two and two,
And in a sorry place, heard the oxen low.
Refrain

Therein did we see, a sweet and goodly may
And a fair old man, upon the straw she lay.
Refrain

This is Christ the Lord, masters be ye glad!
Christmas is come in, and no folk should be sad.
Refrain

–English words by William Morris
