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. 

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. 

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 whcre Jesus lay. 

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. 

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

Now let us all with one accord
Sing praises to our heav'nly Lord,
That hat made heav'n and earth of naught,
And with His blood mankind hath bought

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.
