the first noel

Verse 1

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


Chorus

Noel Noel Noel Noel

Born is the King of Israel


Verse 2

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


Verse 3

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
