  The First Noel

The First Noel


The first Noel the Angels did say
Was to certain poor shepherds in fields as they lay
In fields where they lay keeping their sheep
On a cold winter's night that was so deep.
Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel
Born is the King of Israel

They looked up and saw a star
Shining in the east, beyond them far
And to the earth it gave great light
And so it continued both day and night
Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel
Born is the King of Israel

And by the light of that same star
Three wise men came from country far,
To seek for a King was their intent,
And to follow the star whereever it went.
Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel
Born is the King of Israel

This star drew nigh to the northwest;
O'er Bethlehem it took its rest.
And there it did both stop and stay,
Right over the place where Jesus lay.
Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel
Born is the King of Israel

Then they did know assuredly
Within that house, the King did lie
One entered in then for to see
And found the babe in poverty.
Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel
Born is the King of Israel

Then entered in those wise men three,
Full reverently, upon bended knee,
And offered there, in His presence,
Their gold and myrrh and frankincense.
Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel
Born is the King of Israel

Then let us all with one accord
Sing praises to our heavenly Lord;
That hath made heaven and earth of naught,
And with his blood mankind hath bought.
Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel
Born is the King of Israel 

If we in our time do well
We shall be free from death and hell
For God hath prepared for us all
A resting place in general.
Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel
Born is the King of Israel
