"The First Nowell" as written by Robert Shaw and Alice Parker....
The first Noël, 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

Noël, Noël, Noël, Noël
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

Noël, Noël, Noël, Noël
Born is the King of Israel

And by the light of that same star
Three Wise men came from country far
To seek for a King was their intent
And to follow the star wherever it went

Noël, Noël, Noël, Noël
Born is the King of Israel

hen entered in those Wise men three
Full reverently upon their knee
And offered there in His presence
Their gold and myrrh and frankincense

Noël, Noël, Noël, Noël
Born is the King of Israel
