The First Noel

Song by Ben Slee
CCLI Song #7142643

The first Noel 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.

Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel,
Born is the King of Israel!

"Your Saviour has arrived, do not be afraid:
He brings pardon for sinners who hope in his name.
He left his throne and entered our grief
To exchange our estrangement from God with His peace."

Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel,
Born is our hope, see the darkness dispelled.

See the glory of the Lord bursting over the skies,
Igniting the darkness repelling the night.
Our God has come to dwell with us
And atone for our sins by shedding His blood.

Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel,
God has come down in Emmanuel.

Then let us all with one accord
Sing praises to our heavenly Lord.
Who has made heaven and earth of naught,
And with His blood mankind has bought.

O praise the Lord! O praise the Lord!
Hope is alive for our Saviour is born!
