While Shepherds Watched (1)

  1. While shepherds watched
    Their flocks by night,
    All seated on the ground,
    The angel of the Lord came down,
    And glory shone around.
  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."
  3. "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."
  4. "The heavenly Babe
    You there shall find
    To human view displayed,
    All meanly wrapped in swathing bands
    And in a manger laid."
  5. Thus spake the seraph,
    And forthwith
    Appeared a shining throng
    Of angels praising God, who thus
    Addressed their joyful song:
  6. "All glory be
    To God on high,
    And to the earth be peace;
    Goodwill henceforth from heaven to men
    Begin and never cease!"
