The First Noel

Janet Drew
Traditional English Carol


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


Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel

Born is the King of Israel


When they looked up and saw the star

Shining in the East that was so far

And to the earth it gave great light

And so it continued both day and night
