The First Noel the Angel Did Say

Anonymous (1833)

Lyrics

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.


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]


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]


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. [Refrain]


Then entered in those Wise Men three, full reverently upon the knee, and offered there, in His presence, their gold and myrrh and frankincense. [Refrain]
