The First Noel

Sing and Learn the Actions!


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.


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.


This star drew nigh to the
O’er 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
Their gold and myrrh and


Then let us all with one accord,
Sing praises to our heavenly
That hath made heaven and
earth of naught,
And with his blood mankind
hath bought.
