The First Noel Lyrics – Free Printable PDF

The First Noel” is a traditional classical English carol, most likely from the 18th century, although possibly earlier. The song title is also written as “The First Noël” and “The First Nowell”.

At the beginning of the 19th century Davies Gilbert initiated a revival of the caroling tradition that was dying out at the time. ‘The First Nowell’ was first published in Gilbert’s Some Ancient Christmas Carols in 1823. He was based on a 1817 manuscript of Cornish carols. Today it is available in the County Record Office in Truro, England.

Lyrics

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:
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.

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 wheresoever it went
Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel,
Born is the King of Israel.

This star drew nigh to the north-west;
O’er Bethlehem it took its rest;
And there it did both stop and stay
Right over the place where Jesus lay.
Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel,
Born is the King of Israel.

Then entered in those Wise Men three,
Fell reverently upon their knee,
And offered there in his presence,
Their gold and myrrh and frankincense.
Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel,
Born is the King of Israel.

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 hath bought.
Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel,
Born is the King of Israel.
