The First Noel

[Intro]

[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 Kiing 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 whereever it went.

[Verse 4]
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 whcre Jesus lay.

[Verse 5]
Then they did know assuredly
Within that house, the King did lie
One entered in then for to see
And found the babe in poverty.

[Verse 6]
Then entered in those wise men three,
Full reverently, upon bended knee,
And offered there, in His presence,
Their gold and myrrh and frankincense.

[Verse 7]
If we in our time do well
We shall be free from death and hell
For God hath prepared for us all
A resting place in general.
