Lyrics

1.

The first Nowell, 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.

Refrain

Nowell, Nowell, Nowell, Nowell,

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.

3.

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.

4.

This star drew nigh to the northwest,

O’er Bethlehem it took its rest,

And there it did both stop and stay,

Right over the place where Jesus lay.

5.

Then entered in those wise men three,

Full rev’rently upon the knee,

And offered there, in his presence,

Their gold and myrrh and frankincense.

6.

Then let us all with one accord

Sing praises to our heav’nly Lord;

Who with the Father we adore

And Spirit blest for evermore.
