Halford, Rob - The First Noel Lyrics

The first Noel the angels did say
Was to certain poor shepards 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!

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

This star drew nigh to the northwest
O'er Bethlehem it took its rest
And there it did both stop and stay
Right o'er the place where Jesus lay
Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel
Born is the King of Israel!

Then entered in those Wise men three
Fell reverently upon their knee
And offered there in His presence
Their gold and myrrh and frankincense
Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel
Born is the kind of Israel!

Then let us all with one accord
Sing praises to our heavenly Lord
That hath made heaven and earth of nought
And with his blood mankind was bought
Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel
Born is the King of Israel!

Halford, Rob The First Noel Comments
  1. Trey Ichabod

    Wow... just WOW! This is the first time I heard this song. It literally brought tears to my eyes. That's why I love Rob so much, he can lift me up with the most extreme heavy metal vocals of all time and bring me to tears with a Christmas sons without breaking a sweat. The way he conveys the emotions of a song to his listeners is truely incredible. The only people in the world who could have done it (apart from Rob) were Elvis, David Bowie and Bruce Dickinson.

    To every religious person in the world, MERRY CHRISTMAS from a non-religious guy who loves Christmas and all it stands for.
