Verse: Luke 2:8
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
And glory shone around
verse 2
Fear not said he for mighty dread
Had seized their troubled mind
Glad tidings of great joy I bring
To you and all mankind
To you and all mankind
verse 3
To you in David's town this day
Is born of David's line
A Savior who is Christ the Lord
And this shall be the sign
And this shall be the sign
verse 4
The heavenly Babe you there shall find
To human view displayed
All meanly wrapped in swathing bands
And in a manger laid
And in a manger laid
verse 5
All glory be to God on high
And to the Earth be peace
Good will henceforth from heaven to men
Begin and never cease
Begin and never cease
