While shepherds watched


    • While shepherds watched their flocks by night, 
    • All seated on the ground, 
    • The angel of the Lord came down 
    • And glory shone around. 

    • '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 in David's town this day 
    • Is born of David's line 
    • A Saviour, who is Christ the Lord, 
    • And this shall be the sign. 

    • 'The heavenly babe you there shall find 
    • To human view displayed, 
    • All meanly wrapped in swaddling bands, 
    • And in a manger laid.' 

    • Thus spake the seraph; and forthwith 
    • Appeared a shining throng 
    • Of angels, praising God, who thus 
    • Addressed their joyful song: 

    • 'All glory be to God on high 
    • And on the earth be peace; 
    • Goodwill henceforth from heaven to men 
    • Begin and never cease.'
