The First Noel


The First Noel

Music for Women

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

Oh a cold winter’s night that was so deep.

Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel!

Born is the King of Israel!

 

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.

Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel!

Born is the King of Israel!

 

3. Then let us all with one accord

Sing praises to our heav’nly Lord

The pains of sin and death he fought

And with his blood mankind hath bought.

Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel!

Born is the King! Praises we sing!

Born is the King of Israel!

Born is the King of Israel!
