"The First Nowell"

The First Nowell, 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

Nowell, Nowell, Nowell, Nowell
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

Nowell, Nowell, Nowell, Nowell
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

Nowell, Nowell, Nowell, Nowell
Born is the King of Israel


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

Nowell, Nowell, Nowell, Nowell
Born is the King of Israel
