WHILE SHEPHERDS WATCHED THEIR FLOCKS BY NIGHT

 

Verse 1:

While shepherds watched

Their flocks by night

All seated on the ground

The angel of the Lord came down

And glory shone around

 

Verse 2:

"Fear not!" said he; for mighty dread

Had seized their troubled minds

"Glad tidings of great joy I bring

To you and all mankind

 

Verse 3:

To you in David's house this day

Is born of David's line

The Saviour who is Christ the Lord

And this shall be the sign

 

Verse 4:

The heavenly Babe

You there shall find

To human view displayed

All meanly wrapped

In swaddling bands

And in a manger laid.

 

Verse 5:

Thus spake the Seraph and forthwith

Appeared a shining throng

Of angels praising God on High

Who thus addressed their song.

 

Verse 6:

"All glory be to God on high

And to the earth be peace

Goodwill henceforth

From Heaven to man

Begin and never cease"
