Original text and translations
Terly terlow, terly terlow,
So merrily the shepherds began to blow.
It was the midde of the night:
Adown from heaven they came a light.
Angels there came a company
With merry songs and melody.
The shepherds anongan them aspy.
The shepherds hied them to Bethlehem
To see that blesséd Sonnébeam,
And there they found the World's Lightstream.
Now pray we to that meek Child,
And to his mother that is so mild
Whose maidenhood was never defiled.
