Lyrics
The First Noel the angel did say
Was to certain poor shepherds
In fields as they lay;
In fields as 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.

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.

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.

This star drew nigh to the northwest,
O’er Bethlehem it took it rest,
And there it did both stop and stay
Right over the place where Jesus lay.

Then entered in those wise men three
Full reverently upon their knee,
and offered there in his presence
Their gold, and myrrh, and frankincense.

Then let us all with one accord
Sing praises to our heavenly Lord;
That hath made heaven and earth of naught,
And with his blood mankind hath bought.

Trivia

It is not certain who “Elise” was. Max Unger suggested that Ludwig Nohl may have transcribed the title incorrectly and the original work may have been named “Für Therese”, a reference to Therese Malfatti von Rohrenbach zu Dezza (1792–1851). She was a friend and student of Beethoven’s to whom he supposedly proposed in 1810, though she turned him down to marry the Austrian nobleman and state official Wilhelm von Droßdik in 1816.

Amazing Grace | Free Sheet Music for Piano Solo

The words to Amazing Grace were written by English Poet, John Newton (1725–1807), and published in 1779. Newton was ordained in the Church of England in 1764. The Christian hymn lyrics for “Amazing Grace” were written to illustrate a sermon delivered on New Year’s Day in 1773. Historians are unsure if music was used to accompany the first presentation of the text. It is possible that it was chanted by the congregation. In print, Amazing Grace can first be seen in Newton and Cowper’s Olney Hymns, though the text remained relatively obscure in England. In America, the hymn gained popularity in the early 19th century and was set to more than 20 different melodies. Finally, in 1835, the text was joined with the tune “New Britain”, with which is most often sung in churches today.

Amazing grace! How sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me.
I once was lost, but now am found,
Was blind but now I see.
