Sir Christémas

William Mathias (1934-1992)

Sir Christémas

Nowell, nowell, nowell, nowell.
Who is there that singeth so,
Nowell, nowell, nowell, nowell?
I am here, Sir Christémas.
Welcome, my lord Sir Christémas!
Welcome to all, both more and less,
Come near, come near, come near.
Nowell, nowell, nowell, nowell.

Dieu vous garde, beaux sieurs,
Tidings I you bring:
A maid hath borne a child full young,
Which causeth you to sing:
Nowell, nowell, nowell, nowell.

Christ is now born of a pure maid;
In an oxstall he is laid,
Wherefore sing we at a brayde:
Nowell, nowell, nowell, nowell.

Buvez bien, buvez bien
Par toute la compagnie.
Make good cheer and be right merry,
And sing with us now joyfully,
Nowell, nowell, nowell, nowell.

Words anon. (c. 1500)
