1. Tidings, people, take good heed!
Turn ye not away!
Child of promise, King indeed,
Christ is born today, today!

Refrain:
Therefore let all people sing,
Welcome be our Heav'nly King!
Welcome, welcome,
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
