1 From far away we come to you;
The snow under foot and the moon in the sky,
To tell of great tidings, strange and true,
Christian men all, salvation is nigh! Salvation is nigh.
From far away we come to you;
To tell of great tidings, strange and true;
From far away we come to you,
To tell of great tidings strange and true.

2 Out on a field where the night was deep,
The snow under foot &c.
There lay three shepherds tending their sheep,
Christian men all, salvation is nigh! Salvation is nigh.
From far away we come to you;
To tell of great tidings, strange and true;
From far away we come to you,
To tell of great tidings strange and true.

3 "O ye shepherds what did you see?
The snow under foot, &c.
To make you so full of joy and glee?"
Christian men all, salvation is nigh! Salvation is nigh.
From far away we come to you;
To tell of great tidings, strange and true;
From far away we come to you,
To tell of great tidings strange and true.

4 "In an oxstall this night we saw,
The snow under foot, &c.
A Babe in a manger, laid on straw,
Christian men all, salvation is nigh! Salvation is nigh.
From far away we come to you;
To tell of great tidings, strange and true;
From far away we come to you,
To tell of great tidings strange and true.

5 And as we gazed this sight upon,
The snow under foot, &c.
The angels called Him, the Holy ONE,
Christian men all, salvation is nigh! Salvation is nigh.
From far away we come to you;
To tell of great tidings, strange and true;
From far away we come to you,
To tell of great tidings strange and true.

6 And a marvellous song we straight heard then,
The snow under foot, &c.
Of Peace on Earth, Good will towards men,"
Christian men all, salvation is nigh! Salvation is nigh.
From far away we come to you;
To tell of great tidings, strange and true;
From far away we come to you,
To tell of great tidings strange and true.

7 New of a fair and marvellous thing!
The snow under foot, &c.
Nowell, Nowell, Nowell, we sing!
Christian men all, salvation is nigh! Salvation is nigh.
From far away we come to you;
To tell of great tidings, strange and true;
From far away we come to you,
To tell of great tidings strange and true.
