The First nowell _ Sir Colin Davis

Nowell Nowell Nowell Nowell

The first Nowell 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

Nowell Nowell Nowell Nowell

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

Nowell Nowell Nowell Nowell

Born is the King of Israel

 

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

Nowell Nowell Nowell Nowell

Born is the King of Israel

Nowell Nowell

Then let us all with one accord

Sing praises to our heavenly Lord

That hath made heaven and earth of naught

And with his blood mankind hath bought

Nowell Nowell Nowell Nowell

Born is the King of Israel

 

Nowell Nowell Nowell Nowell
