Breton Carol

Breton Carol

A wonder thing to see, Nowell, nowell, nowell,
A wonder thing to see, Nowell, nowell, nowell.
God's Son for us is born and in a manger laid
By Mary, mother and maid, Nowell, nowell, nowell.

Verse 2:  Come shepherds, leave your sheep, etc.

Verse 3:  Three noble Kings brought gold, etc.

Verse 4:  So let us all rejoice, etc.

Hope this helps!
