The First Noel

The First Noel 

“The First Noel” is a very intriguing Christmas song. It focuses on a bright star in the midst of the dark night that announces Jesus to the world! The word, “noel,” literally means “new light,” referring to the exact moment when the sunlight begins to overtake the darkness. Wow! What an appropriate, symbolic revelation of the birth of our Lord!

 

The first noel the Angel 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
O born is the King of Israel!

Noel!

They looked up and saw a bright 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
O born is the King of Israel!

Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel
Born is the King

Born is the King

O born is the King of Israel!

Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel!

 

The star drew nigh to the northwest
O'er Bethlehem it took its rest
And there it did stop and stay
Right o'er the place where Jesus lay.
Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel
Born is the King of Israel!
Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel
Born is the King

Born is the King

O born is the King of Israel!

Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel!
