Here we bring new water from the well so clear,
For to worship God with, this happy New Year.

(Chorus:
Sing levy-dew, sing levy-dew, the water and the wine,
The seven bright gold wires and the bugles that do shine.)

Sing reign of Fair Maid, with gold upon her toe;
Open you the West Door and turn the Old Year go.

(Chorus.)

Sing reign of Fair Maid, with gold upon her chin;
Open you the East Door and let the New Year in.

(Chorus.)
