[V1]
    C       G       F         C
 The first Noel, the angel did say
       F            C 
 Was to certain poor shepherds
   F           G   C
 In fields as they lay ||
   C            G
 In fields where they
    F             C
 Lay keeping their sheep
     F             C/Am
 On a cold winter's night
     F        G C
 That was so deep

[V2]
     C      G
 They looked up
    F     C
 And saw a star
    F          C
 Shining in the East
   F    G   C
 Beyond them far ||
    C      G
 And to the earth
   F          C
 It gave great light
   F        C
 And so it continued
     F       G  C       
 Both day and night


[V3]
     C      G
 And by the light
    F     C
 of that same star,
    F          C
 Three wise men came
   F    G   C
 from country far; ||
    C      G
 To seek for a king 
   F          C
 was their intent,
   F        C
 And to follow the star
     F       G  C       
 wherever it went.


[V4]
    C           G        F         C
 This star drew nigh to the northwest
F          C
 O'er Bethlehem
F           G C
 it took its rest ||
   C          G
 And there it did
   F          C
 both Pause and stay
       F         C        F      G C
 Right o'er the place where Jesus lay.


[V5]
     C        G        F         C
 Then entered in those Wise men three
F         C
 Full reverently
 F            G C
 upon their knee ||
   C          G
 And offered there
   F          C
 in His presence
       F          C        F      G C
 Their gold and myrrh and frankincense.


[V6]
    C      G        F         C
 Then let us all with one accord
F          C
 Sing praises to
 F            G C
 our heavenly Lord ||
   C          G
 That hath made Heaven
   F          C
 and earth of nought
       F         C        F       G C
 And with his blood mankind has bought.
