The first Noel

God rest ye merry, gentlemen; let nothing you dismay.
Remember, Christ our Savior was born on Christmas Day
To save our souls from Satan’s power when we were gone astray.
O tidings of comfort and joy!
O tidings of comfort and joy!

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!

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.
Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel
Born is the King of Israel!

This is the time of year
To spread a little joy and cheer
Remembering the newborn King
Fa, la, la, la, la, la, sing
From the heaven up he fell
Jehovah Emmanuel
Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel

Born is the King of Israel!
