[Verse 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.

[Chorus]
Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel
Born is the King 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.

[Chorus]
Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel
Born is the King of Israel.

[Verse 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.

[Chorus]
Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel,
Born is the King of Israel.

[Verse 4]
This star drew nigh to the north-west;
O'er Bethlehem it took it's rest,
And there it did both stop and stay,
Right over the place where Jesus lay.

[Chorus]
Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel,
Born is the King of Israel.

[Verse 5]
Then entered in those wise men three,
Fell reverently upon their knee,
And offered there in his presence
Their gold and myrrh and frankincense.

[Chorus]
Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel,
Born is the kind of Israel.

[Verse 6]
Then let us all with one accord
Sing praises to our heavenly Lord,
That hath made heaven and earth of naught,
And with his blood mankind has bought.

[Chorus]
Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel,
Born is the King of Israel.
