1. Tidings, people, take good heed!
Turn ye not away!
Child of promise, King indeed,
Christ is born today, today!
Therefore let all people sing,
Welcome be our Heav'nly King!
Welcome be our King!
2. This is true: be not afraid!
Wonderful to tell;
In a manger He is laid
Angels sing Nowell! Refrain
3. This has been the hope of men,
This the faith of old;
Since the very world began,
This has been foretold: Refrain
