THE FIRST NOEL

The first Noel the angel did say
Was to certain poor shepherds
in fields where they lay;
In fields as they lay,
a-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 afar,
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 a country afar;
To seek for a king was their intent,
And to follow the star wherever it went.

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

This star drew nigh to the northwest,
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
Full 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 naught,
And with his blood mankind hath bought.

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

ONCE IN ROYAL DAVID'S CITY ...

Once in royal David's city,
Stood a lowly cattle shed,
Where a mother laid her Baby,
In a manger for His bed.
Mary was that mother mild,
Jesus Christ her little Child.

He came down to earth from heaven,
Who is God and Lord of all;
And His shelter was a stable,
And His cradle was a stall.
With the poor and mean and lowly,
Lived on earth our Saviour holy.

And through all his wondrous childhood,
He would honour and obey,
Love and watch the lowly maiden,
In whose gentle arms he lay.
Christian children all must be
Mild, obedient, good as he.

For he is our childhood's pattern,
Day by day like us he grew.
He was little, weak and helpless,
Tears and smiles like us he knew.
And he feeleth for our sadness,
And he shareth in our gladness.

And our eyes at last shall see Him
Through His own redeeming love,
For that Child so dear and gentle
Is our Lord in heaven above.
And He leads His children on
To the place where He is gone.

OH COME,
ALL YE FAITHFUL

O come, all ye faithful,
Joyful and triumphant,
O come ye, O come ye to Bethlehem;
Come and behold him,
Born the King of angels;
CHORUS:
O come, let us adore him,
O come, let us adore him,
O Come, let us adore him,
Christ the Lord.


God of God,
Light of Light,
Lo! he abhors not
the Virgin's womb:
Very God,
Begotten, not created;
chorus:

Sing, choirs of angels,
Sing in exultation,
Sing, all ye citizens
of heaven above;
Glory to God
In the highest;
chorus:

See how the shepherds,
Summoned to his cradle,
Leaving their flocks,
draw nigh to gaze;
We too will thither
Bend our joyful footsteps;
chorus:

Child, for us sinners
Poor and in the manger,
We would embrace thee,
with love and awe;
Who would not love thee,
Loving us so dearly?
chorus:

Yea, Lord, we greet thee,
Born this happy morning;
Jesus, to thee be glory given;
Word of the Father,
Now in flesh appearing;
chorus:

WHILE SHEPHERDS WATCHED
THEIR FLOCKS BY NIGHT

While shepherds watched
their flocks by night,
All seated on the ground,
The angel of the Lord
came down,
And glory shone around.

"Fear not," said he,
for mighty dread
Had seized their troubled minds;
"Glad tidings of great joy I bring
To you and all mankind.

"To you, in David's town,
this day,
Is born of David's line
A Saviour, who is
Christ the Lord;
And this shall be the sign:

The heavenly Babe
you there shall find
To human view displayed,
All meanly wrapped
in swaddling bands
And in a manger laid."

Thus spake the seraph,
and forthwith
Appeared a shining throng
Of angels, praising God,
who thus
Addressed their joyful song:

"All glory be to God on high,
And to the earth be peace;
Goodwill henceforth
from Heaven to men
Begin and never cease."
