The First Noel

(1883) Traditional Christmas Carol

The first Noel the angel did say
Was to certain poor shepherds
in fields as they lay;
In fields as they lay, keeping their sheep, 
On a cold winter's night that was so deep.  

     [CHORUS]  
    
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.

     [CHORUS]

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 wherever it went.

     [CHORUS]

This star drew nigh to the northwest,
O'er Bethlehem it took it rest,
And there it did both stop and stay
Right over the place where Jesus lay.

     [CHORUS]

Then entered in those wise men three
Full reverently upon their knee,
and offered there in his presence
Their gold, and myrrh, and frankincense.

     [CHORUS]

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.

     [CHORUS]
