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 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 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 rev'rently upon the knee
And offered there in His presence
Their gold and myrrh and frankincense
