What Child Is This? Vineyard Music O Little Town of Bethlehem
Christmas In the Vineyard

The First Noel

(Traditional)


      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 they follow the star,
      Wherever it went.

      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.

      Then entered in
      Those wise men three,
      Full rev’rently
      Upon their knee
      And offered there,
      In His presence,
      Their gold and myrrh,
      And frankincense.

      Then let us all,
      With one accord,
      Sing praises to
      Our heavenly Lord,
      That hath made heav’n,
      And earth of naught,
      And with His blood,
      Mankind hath bought.
