"The First Noel" is a traditional classical English Christmas song written by William Sandys and Davies Gilbert.


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 that was so deep

Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel
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


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


This star drew nigh to the northwest
Over Bethlehem it took its rest
And there it did both stop and stay
Right over the place where Jesus lay


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


Then let us all with one accord
Sing praises to our heavenly Lord
That hath made Heaven and Earth of nought
And with his blood mankind has bought
