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