Refrain: Nowell, Nowell, Nowell, Nowell, Born is the King of Israel. 2 They lookèd 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. [Refrain] 3 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. [Refrain] 4 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. [Refrain] 5 Then entered in those wise men three, Full reverently upon their knee, And offered there in his presence, Their gold and myrrh and frankincense. [Refrain] 6 Then let us all with one accord Sing praises to our heav'nly Lord: Who with the Father we adore And Spirit blest for evermore.
