  1. 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
    On a cold winter's night that was so deep.
  2. (Chorus)
    Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel!
    Born is the King of Israel!
  3. 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.
  4. Text and music: Traditional English carol, ca. 17th century
