THE FIRST NOWELL.
2.  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.
Nowell, &c.
3.   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.
Nowell, &c.
4.   This Star drew nigh to the North-West, O'er Bethlehem it took its rest,
And there it did both stop and stay, Right over the place where Jesus lay. Nowell, &c.
5.  Then entered in those Wise men three, Full reverently upon their knee,
And offered there, in His presence, Their gold, and myrrh, and frankincense. Nowell, &c.
6. 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. Nowell, &c.
