Lyrics:

Well Christafari ‘pon the riddim

Don’t you know we’ve got to give them 

The true message of Christmas, yeah...

We wish you a merry Christmas

It’s a Christmas miracle, merry Christmas, ho ho ho, merry Christmas!


The first Noel the angels did say

Was to certain poor shepherds 

In fields as they lay

In fields where they 

Lay keeping their sheep

On a cold winter’s night 

That was so deep


Noel, noel, noel, noel

Born is the King of Israel


Well this one’s for my Lord

For the One who departed 

From the heavens to the earth 

He’s filled up my heart with so much love I got to chant it 

Until everyone has heard 

Well here come the kings with the gifts that they bring

Here come the kings with the gifts that they bring

Gold, frankincense, and myrrh a them bring 

A me say give them to the King, to the King of all Kings


This star drew nigh 

Straight to the northwest

Over Bethlehem 

It took its rest


And there it did 

Both stop and stay

Right over the place 

Where Jesus lay


Noel, noel, noel, noel

Born is the King of Israel


Well this one’s for my Lord 

Christ Jesus me chanting

Him give me new birth

He’s filled up my heart

With so much Joy 

I’ve got to shout it!

And go win some converts 


Well this one’s for the King 

For the King of all Kings 

Give them to the King 

For the King of all Kings

Gold, frankincense, and myrrh a them bring 

A me say give them to the King, for the King of all Kings


Then let us all 

With one accord

Sing praises to our 

Heavenly Lord


That has made Heaven 

And earth of nought

And with His blood 

Mankind hath bought


Noel, noel, noel, noel

Born is the King of Israel


The first Noel is a riddim

That had come straight from heaven

To the town of Bethlehem 

You see the shepherds gather 

When them hear about the Savior 

And the birth of the Son of Man 


So sound up the trumpets 

The King of Kings is coming

Woe-eh, yes

Yes sound up the trumpets 

A new day is dawning 


Well this one isn’t 2nd hand or 3rd rate

For when received His grace 

I had to give Him 1st place 

In every single way


A 2nd act, a 2nd chance 

A 2nd birth, I’m born again

And so I’m singing for the King now every single day


Noel, noel, noel, noel

Born is the King of Israel, 

Of Israel

Of Israel

Merry Christmas
