Lyrics for 'While Shepherds Watched Their Flocks By Night'

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.

"Fear not," he said, for mighty dread
Had seized their troubled minds.
"Glad tidings of great joy I bring
To you and all mankind,
To you and all mankind."

"To you in David's town this day
Is born of David's line,
The Savior who is Christ the Lord,
And this shall be the sign,
And this shall be the sign."

"The heavenly Babe you there shall find
To human view displayed,
And meanly wrapped,
In swathing bands,
And in a manger laid,
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,
Addressed their joyful song.

"All glory be to God on high
And to the earth be peace;
Goodwill henceforth
From heaven to men,
Begin and never cease,
Begin and never cease!"
