The First Noel

1 The first Noel the angel 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.

Refrain

    Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel!

    Born is the King of Israel.

2 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.  Refrain

3 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.  Refrain

4 This star drew near to the northwest,

    o'er Bethlehem it took its rest;

    and there it did both stop and stay

    right over the place where Jesus lay.  Refrain

5 Then entered in those wise men three,

    full rev'rently upon their knee,

    and offered there in his presence

    their gold, and myrrh, and frankincense.  Refrain
