The first Noel the angel did say Was to certain




The first Noel the angel did say
Was to certain poor shepherds
in fields as they lay;
In fields where they lay
tending their sheep,
On a cold winter’s night
that was so deep.

Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel,
Born is the King of Israel.



They lookèd 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.

Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel,
Born is the King of Israel.



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.

Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel,
Born is the King of Israel.



This star drew nigh
to the northwest,
Over Bethlehem it took its rest;
And there it did both stop and stay,
Right over the place where Jesus lay.

Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel,
Born is the King of Israel.



Then did they know assuredly
Within that house the King did lie;
One entered it them for to see,
And found the Babe in poverty.

Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel,
Born is the King of Israel.



Then entered in those
Wise Men three,
Full reverently upon the knee,
And offered there, in His presence,
Their gold and myrrh
and frankincense.

Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel,
Born is the King of Israel.



Between an ox stall and an ass,
This Child truly there He was;
For want of clothing they did Him lay
All in a manger, among the hay.

Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel,
Born is the King of Israel.



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

Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel,
Born is the King of Israel.



If we in our time shall do well,
We shall be free from death and hell;
For God hath prepared for us all
A resting place in general.

Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel,
Born is the King of Israel.
