The First Noel (Born is the King)


Verse 1
The first Noel, earth and heaven embraced
As a virgin beheld her new born babe
From realms on high to a manger on earth
Salvation had dawned in a lowly birth

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

Verse 2
The Son of God, in kindness He came
As a friend to the hopeless, the lost, and the lame
Our sins He bore yet His name we despised
And the hands that brought healing were pierced as He died

Verse 3
The Author of Life, there lifeless He lay
As the grave cast its shadow and darkness reigned
Then out of death broke forth a great light
As He rose up in victory, the glorious Christ

Now let us all with one accord
Bring praises to our King
All glory, power, and honor be
Forever unto Him
