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.
Then let us all with one accord
Sing prases to our heav’nly Lord,
That hath heav’n and earth of naught,
And with His blood mankind hath bought.
