This brings tidings sweet comfort and joy.

The next good joy that Mary had
It was the joy of two,
To see her own son Jesus
To read the Bible through,

And blessed may we be,
This brings tidings sweet comfort and joy, and great joy,
This brings tidings sweet comfort and joy.

Maddy Prior & June Tabor sing a different text on their album "Silly Sisters," one of the NEATEST "folk revival" albums. All Catters' lives will be improved by owning a copy. (Unsolicited testimonial.)

Yes, but Prior and Tabor are the remaining two. I do not feel shortchanged.
