1 The first Nowell 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.

Refrain:
Nowell, Nowell, Nowell, Nowell,
born is the King of Israel.

2 For all to see there was 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. [Refrain]

3 And by the light of that same star
the wise men came from country far;
to seek for a king was their intent,
and to follow the star wherever it went. [Refrain]

4 Then let us all with one accord
sing praises to our heavenly Lord
who hath made heaven and earth of naught,
and with His blood humankind hath bought. [Refrain]
