The First Nowell
(traditional)

The first Nowell the angels did say
Was to certain poor shepherds in fields as they lay,
In fields as they lay, keeping their sheep,
On a cold winters night that was so deep:

Nowell, Nowell,Nowell, Nowell,
Born is the King of Israel!

They looked up and saw a star,
Shining in the east beyond them far;
And to earth it gave great light,
And so it continued both day and night:

Nowell, Nowell,Nowell, Nowell,
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 wherever it went:

Nowell, Nowell,Nowell, Nowell,
Born is the King of Israel!

This star drew nigh to the northwest;
O'er Bethlehem it took a rest,
And there it did both stop and stay
Right over the place where Jesus lay:

Nowell, Nowell,Nowell, Nowell,
Born is the King of Israel!

Then did they know assuredly
Within the house the King did lie:
One entered in then for to see,
And found the Babe in poverty:

Nowell, Nowell,Nowell, Nowell,
Born is the King of Israel!

Then entered in those Wise Men three,
Fell reverently upon their knee,
And offered there in His presence
Both gold and myrrh and frankincense:

Nowell, Nowell,Nowell, Nowell,
Born is the King of Israel!

Between an ox-stall and an ass
This Child truly there born He was;
For want of clothing did he lay
All in the manger, among the hay:

Nowell, Nowell,Nowell, Nowell,
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:

Nowell, Nowell,Nowell, Nowell,
Born is the King of Israel!

If we in our time shall do well,
We shall be free from death and hell;
For God hath prepared for us all
A resting place in general:

Nowell, Nowell,Nowell, Nowell,
Born is the King of Israel!
