The First Noel

The first Noel the angels 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 whereever 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 whcre Jesus lay
Then they did know assuredly
Within that house, the King did lie
One entered in then for to see
And found the babe in poverty
Then entered in those wise men three
Full reverently, upon bended knee
And offered there, in His presence
Their gold and myrrh and frankincense
If we in our time do well
We shall be free from death and hell
For God hath prepared for us all
A resting place in general
