Christmas Carols – The First Noel lyrics

[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.

    It's important to note that in many ways, this song isn't completely accurate. It was not written by a master poet, but by common English folk who weren't very well educated in the true story of Christmas. It could even have been written back when the pastors preached in Latin! But what matters is that the common folk's mediocre lyrics and (you gotta admit) catchy tune has endured for centuries and come to mean a lot to a lot of different people. May it endure for centuries more.
