On a cold winter's night that was so deep

Em   D  C   G C  D  G D G
Born is the king of Israel
[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]
Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel
Born is the king of Israel
Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel
Born is the king of Israel   
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.
