The First Noel
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
In a cold winter's night that was so deep.
Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel
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.
Away in a Manger
Verse 1
Away in a manger, no crib for a bed
The little lord Jesus laid down his sweet head
The stars in the night sky looked down where he
laid
The little lord Jesus asleep on the hay.
Verse 2
The cattle are lowing, the baby awakes
But little lord Jesus, no crying he makes
I love you, Lord Jesus; look down from on high
And stay by my side until morning is nigh.
Verse 3
Be near me, Lord Jesus; I ask you to stay
Close by me for ever, and love me, I pray.
Bless all the dear children in your tender care,
And fit us for heaven, to live with you there.
