The First Noel Lyrics

1.
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.


2.
They looked above and there saw a star,
That shone in the east beyond them so far
And which to earth did give a great light
And so it continued by day and by night.
Noel Noel Noel Noel
Born is the King of Israel.

3.
And by the light of that same star
Three wise men came from the country far;
To seek for a King was their intent,
And to follow the star wherever it went.
Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel,
Born is the King of Israel.

4.
This star drew nigh to the north-west;
At length O’er Bethlehem seemed to rest,
And there it stayed by night and by day,
Right over the place where Jesus lay.
Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel,
Born is the King of Israel.

5.
Then entered in those wise men three,
Most reverently with bended knee,
And offered there in his presence
Both gold and myrrh, with frankincense.
Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel,
Born is the kind of Israel.

6.
Then let us all with one accord
Sing praises to our heavenly Lord,
That made both heaven and earth of nought,
And with his blood mankind hath bought.
Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel,
Born is the King of Israel.
