While shepherds watched their flocks by night

SS & S 33

Verse1
While shepherds watched their flocks by night,
All seated on the ground;

The angel of the Lord came down,
And glory shone around.

Verse2
“Fear not!” said he for mighty dread
Had seized their troubled mind,

“Glad tidings of great joy I bring
To you and all mankind.

Verse3
“To you, in David’s town, this day,
Is born of David’s line

The Saviour, who is Christ the Lord;
And this shall be the sign:

Verse4
“The heavenly Babe you there shall find
To human view displayed,

All meanly wrapped in swathing bands,
And in a manger laid.”

Verse5
Thus spake the seraph and forth-with
Appeared a shining throng

Of angels, praising God, who thus
Addressed their joyful song :

Verse6
“All glory be to God on high !
And to the earth be peace !

Goodwill henceforth from heaven to men
Begin, and never cease !”
