THE FIRST NOEL
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,
cold winter's night that was so deep,
Noel, Noel, Noel,
Born is the King of Israel.
They looked up and saw a
Shining in the East, beyond them far;
And to the earth it gave a
And so it continued both day and night.
by the light of that same star,
Three wise men came from country far;
seek for a King was their intent,
And to follow the star wherever it
Ths star drew night to the northwest,
Bethlehem it took its rest;
And there it did both stop and stay,
over the place where Jesus lay.
Then entered in those wise
Full reverently upon their knee;
And offered there in His
Their gold, and myrrh, and frankincense.
