A Child this day is born

A Child this day is born

A Child this day is born,
A Child of high renown;
Most worthy of a sceptre,
A sceptre and a crown.
 
Nowell, Nowell, Nowell,
Nowell, sing all we may,
Because the King of kings
Was born this blessed day.
 
These tidings shepherds heard,
While watching their fold,
Twas by an Angel unto them
That night revealed and told. 
 
Nowell, Nowell, Nowell,
Nowell, sing all we may,
Because the King of kings
Was born this blessed day.
 
To whom the Angel spoke,
Saying, "Be not afraid;
Be glad, poor silly shepherds -
Why are you so dismayed?"
 
Nowell, Nowell, Nowell,
Nowell, sing all we may,
Because the King of kings
Was born this blessed day.
 
"For lo! I bring you tidings
Of gladness and of mirth,
Which cometh to all people by
This holy Infant's birth." 
 
Nowell, Nowell, Nowell,
Nowell, sing all we may,
Because the King of kings
Was born this blessed day.
 
Then was there with the Angel
An host incontinent
Of heavenly bright soldiers,
Which from the Highest was sent. 
 
Nowell, Nowell, Nowell,
Nowell, sing all we may,
Because the King of kings
Was born this blessed day.
 
Lauding the Lord our God,
And our celestial King:
All glory be in Paradise,
This heavenly host did sing. 
 
Nowell, Nowell, Nowell,
Nowell, sing all we may,
Because the King of kings
Was born this blessed day.
 
And as the Angel told them,
So to them did appear;
They found the young Child, Jesus Christ,
With Mary, his mother dear.
 
Nowell, Nowell, Nowell,
Nowell, sing all we may,
Because the King of kings
Was born this blessed day.
 
All glory be to God,
That sitteth still on high
with praises and with triumph great,
And joyful melody. 
 
Nowell, Nowell, Nowell,
Nowell, sing all we may,
Because the King of kings
Was born this blessed day.
