  • The first Nowell

    Hi everyone

    I've put together a slightly different version of 'The first Nowell' that we're going to try this Sunday morning. Hope you like it:

    Lyrics:

    The first Nowell the angel did say
    was to certain poor shepherds in fields as they lay;
    in fields as they lay keeping their sheep,
    on a cold winter's night that was so deep.

    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.

    Chorus:
    Nowell, Nowell, Nowell, Nowell, 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 over the place where Jesus lay.

    Then entered in those wise men three,
    full reverently upon their knee,
    and offered there in his presence
    their gold, and myrrh, and frankincense.

    Chorus

    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 hath bought.

    Chorus

    Rich, your piano arrangement is absolutely lovely. It fits with the words and traditional tune very well.
    Thanks for sharing.

      Thanks Tom We tried it this morning and it seemed to go well (though it was more guitar-led).
