Nigh Bethl'em on a wint'ry night,
noel, noel, noel!
Poor shepherds saw a lonely sight
when angel hosts in vesture bright
burst forth from heaven's lofty height,
and sang, "Noel, noel",
and sang, "Noel, noel!"
Peace and good will the Christ child brings,
noel, noel, noel!
And saves all men from evil things,
for He of whom the angel sings
is Lord of lords and King of kinds!
Then sing noel, noel, noel!
Then sing noel, noel!

So Christian folk, put fear aside,
noel, noel, noel!
And spread the gospel far and wide,
that joy be great at Christmastide,
and God in Christ be magnified!
Then sing, noel, noel, noel!
Then sing noel, noel!
