CHRISTMAS 2018

Sing We Noel Once More
 
I arose one morning in the early light
When the earth with frost was all shining white
 
Sing we Noel, Noel, Noel
Sing we Noel once more
 
Then I went to find Guillaume my neighbor near
Tell me what’s that song you so gladly hear?
 
Sing we Noel, Noel, Noel
Sing we Noel once more
 
I am glad to hear the nightingale’s sweet song
I have heard its notes ringing all night long
 
Sing we Noel, Noel, Noel
Sing we Noel once more
 
Tis no song of nightingale or any bird
‘Twas an angel’s voice from high heaven you heard
 
Sing we Noel, Noel, Noel
Sing we Noel once more
 
In a stable stall he told us born this night
Is the Son of God, come from heaven’s light
 
Sing we Noel, Noel, Noel
Sing we Noel once more
 
Then I took my oboe and my flageolet
Guillaume took his lute and away we set
 
Sing we Noel, Noel, Noel
Sing we Noel once more
 
Shepherds come with us, this little lamb to see
We will give him music, sweet melody
 
Sing we Noel, Noel, Noel
Sing we Noel once more
 

 The David Randolf Singers perform Sing We Noel Once More

Song of the Nightingale; may be confused with an angel’s
