The First Noel by Davies Gilbert is featured in Glee, Actually, the tenth episode of Season Four. It is sung by Marley with the New Directions (album version).

In the episode, Marley sings a short, cut-down a cappella version of the song as a Christmas gift to her mother, Millie. As she sings, Sue looks over through the door, watching the sweet scene. 

Lyrics

Marley:
The first Noel the angel 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.

Marley with New Directions harmonizing:
Noel Noel Noel Noel

Marley with New Directions:
Born is the King of Israel

Marley with New Directions harmonizing:
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.

Marley with New Directions:
Noel Noel Noel Noel

Marley (New Directions):
Born is the King (Born is the King)

Marley with New Directions:
Of Israel.
