1. There came three Sages from afar,
On worship bent, led by a star,
To Bethlehem where shepherds are,
Here ye now the story.

Chorus
Noel, Noel let us sing
Unto Christ our heav'nly King,
Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel,
Noel let us sing
Unto Christ our heav'nly King,
Our heav'nly King.

2. A Babe they found in manger laid,
To Him their homage then they paid;
This Babe was Christ, by Whom we're made
Heirs of heav'n and glory. Chorus

3. Their gifts, myrrh, frankincense and gold,
And these were seeming, as threefold
They Prophet, Priest, and King foretold;
Angels sing His glory. Chorus

4. And this the message of the King --
"On earth goodwill and peace I bring"'
With praises let the whole world ring
And reflect His glory. Chorus
