The New Nativity

(A Carol for Male Voices) Words by C. Duncan Jones Music by [illegible] Treharve

Well they knew what they would find,

Those Lords of the uplifted mind,

Faring through the midnight sand

Of a disregarded land.

In a crowded hostel's byre

Lay, at last, the World's Desire.

In a stable slept their King

From a stable let us sing;

Nowell, nowell, nowell, men.

Christ is come on Earth again.
