THE FIRST NOEL

The first Noel the angel did say 
Was to certain poor shepherds

In fields as they lay: 
In fields where they lay

A-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 wherever it went. 


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


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


Then let us all with one accord 
Sing praises to our heavenly Lord, 
That hath made heaven and earth of nought, 
And with his blood mankind has bought.
