1. Sing we now of Christmas,
Noel sing we here.
Hear our grateful praises
To the Babe so dear.

2. Angels called to shepherds,
“Leave your flocks at rest;
Journey forth to Bethl’hem
Find the Lamb-kin blest.”

3. In the stall they found Him;
Joseph and Mary mild
Seated ’round the manger,
Watching the holy Child.

4. From the eastern country
Came the kings afar,
Bearing gifts to Bethl’hem,
Guided by a star.

5. Gold and myrrh they took there,
Gifts of greatest price;
There was ne’er a stable
So like paradise.

Refrain:
Sing We Noel, the King is Born, Noel!
Sing we now of Christmas, sing we now Noel!
