about

This is a fifteenth-century Christmas carol from England. The lyrics are a mix of Middle English and Latin in no particular order - whatever fit the scheme and rhymed was written in.

lyrics

Chorus:
Nowel syng we bothe al and som,
Now Rex Pacificus is ycome.

Exortum est in love and lysse:
Now Cryst hys grace he gan us gysse,
And with hys body us bought to blysse,
Bothe al and sum.

[Chorus]

De fructu ventris of Mary bright,
Bothe God and man in here alyght:
Owte of dysese he dyde us dyght,
Bothe al and sum.

[Chorus]

Gloria tibi ay and blysse:
God unto his grace he us wysse,
The rent of heven that we not mysse,
Bothe al and sum.

[Chorus]
