Nova! Nova!

  1. Gabriel of high degree,
    He came down from Trinity
    To Nazareth in Galilee.
    Ave, Maria!
    Nova! Nova! Nova! Nova!
    'Ave' fit 'Eva'.
  2. He met a maiden in a place,
    He kneelžd down afore her face,
    He said: "Hail, Mary, full of grace!"
    Ave, Maria!
    Nova! Nova! Nova! Nova!
    'Ave' fit 'Eva'.
  3. When the maiden heard tell of this,
    She was full sore abashed, I wis,
    And weened that she had done amiss.
    Ave, Maria!
    Nova! Nova! Nova! Nova!
    'Ave' fit 'Eva'.
  4. Then said the angel: "Dread not thu,
    Ye shall conceive in all virtue
    A Child whose name shall be Jesu."
    Ave, Maria!
    Nova! Nova! Nova! Nova!
    'Ave' fit 'Eva'.
