lyrics

The First Noel

Words: Trad. English carol
Music: Trad. English carol; harm from Christmas Carols New and Old
Tune: ---, Meter: Irr. with Refrain

Arranged and performed by Allison Crowe

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

Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel,
born is the King of Israel

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

Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel,
born is the King of Israel

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

Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel,
born is the King of Israel

Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel,
born is the King of Israel
