Lyrics

The First Noel
(1883) Traditional Christmas Carol
The first Noel the angel did sayWas to certain poor shepherdsin 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 starShining 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 starThree 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 stayRight over the place where Jesus lay.
     [CHORUS]Then entered in those wise men threeFull reverently upon their knee,and offered there in his presenceTheir gold, and myrrh, and frankincense.
     [CHORUS]Then let us all with one accordSing praises to our heavenly Lord;That hath made heaven and earth of naught,  And with his blood mankind hath bought.
     [CHORUS]
