The First Noel Lyrics

Lyrics, Author Unknown 
Harmony Attributed to Sir John Stainer (c.1875) 
Christmas Carol

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. 
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.

Then entered in these wise men three, 
Full reverently upon their knee, 
And offered there in His presence, 
Their gold and myrrh and frankincense. 
Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel, 
Born is the King of Israel.
