 5The first Nowell the angel did say
 6Was to certain poor shepherds 
 7in fields where they lay
 8In fields where they lay keeping their sheep,
 9On a cold winter's night that was so deep.

17Looked up and saw a star
18Shining in the East, beyond them far
19And to the earth it gave great light,
20And so it continued both day and night.

27And by the light of that same star,
28Three Wise Men came from country far;
29To seek for a King was their intent,
30And to follow the star wherever it went.

37This star drew nigh to the North-West;
38O'er Bethlehem it took its rest,
39And there it did both stop and stay,
40Right over the place where Jesus lay.

47Then entered in those Wise Men three,
48Full reverently upon their knee,
49And offered there in His presence
50Their gold and myrrh and frankincense.

57Then let us all with one accord
58Sing praises to our Heavenly Lord
59Who hath made heaven and earth of naught,
60And with His blood mankind hath bought.

64Born is the King of Israel!
