The first noel

1. 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.

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
Noel Noel, Noel Noel
Born is the King of Israel.

3. And by the light of that same star
Three wise men came
from the 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.
