The First Noel
      (William Sandys & Davies Gilbert)

The first Noel, the angels say
To Bethlehem's shepherds as they lay
At midnight watch, when keeping sheep
The winter wild, the light snow deep

Chorus:
Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel!
Born is the King of Israel

Now by the light of this bright star
Three wise men came from country far
They sought a king, such their intent,
The star their guide where'er it went

Then drawing nigh to the northwest,
O'er Bethlehem town it took its rest
The wise men learnt its cause of stay,
And found the place where Jesus lay

Then enter'd in these Wise Men three
With reverence fall on their knee
And offer'd up in His presence
The gifts of gold and frankincense
