Terly, terlow
Language: English 
Terly, terlow.
So merrily the shepherds began to blow.

About the field they piped full right.
lt was the middle of the night
Adown from Heaven there came a light.

Angels there came a company
With merry songs and melody.
The shepherds anon 'gan them espy.

The shepherds hied them to Bethlehem
To see that blessed Sonnebeam,
And there they found the world's Lightstream.

Now pray we to that young meek Child
And to His Mother fair and mild
Whose maidenhood was ne'er defiled.
