Tidings true there become newe,
(Tidings true Tidings newe)
Blessed be Jesu.

Tidings true told there is true;
Jesu to be born of a maid.
Now is fulfilled that prophecy said,
Blessed be Jesu.

Tidings true there become newe,
(Tidings true Tidings newe)
Blessed be Jesu.

Tidings true and angel bright
Sang how there is sprung a light
To all that believe aright,
Blessed be Jesu.

Tidings true there become newe,
(Tidings true Tidings newe)
Blessed be Jesu.
