HYMN Lyrics Text: The First Noel | Christmas Song

HYMN Lyrics Text: Humbly We Adore Thee

1. 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 night

That was so deep.

Noel, Noel, Noel. Noel

Born is the King of Israel.

2. They looked above and saw a star


That shone in the east

Beyond them afar,

And which to earth did give a great light.

And so it continued

by day and by night.

3. 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.

4. This star drew near

to the north west,

at length over Bethlehem

seemed to rest.

And there it stayed

by night and by day,

right over the place

where Jesus lay.

5. Then entered in

those wise men three,

most reverently with bended knee


and offered there, in His presence,

both gold and myrrh

with frankincense.

6. Then let us all with one accord,

Sing praises to our heavenly Lord,

that made both heaven

and earth of nought.

And with His blood

Mankind has bought
