327. In Midnight's Stillness

1 In midnight's stillness,
Clear a voice rings through:
"Rise up, you shepherds,
God is born to you!
Quickly go and find the Savior;
Bethlehem does shine with favor;
Haste to greet your Lord,
Haste to greet your Lord."

2 And what a wonder!
Babe in manger lies.
All that was pondered,
Seen with wond'ring eyes.
"God-with-us" in holy splendor,
Lowly hearts in worship render
Songs of greatest joy,
Songs of greatest joy.

3 Ah, welcome, Savior,
Whom we've long desired;
All generations
Have for you aspired.
Kings and prophets waited for you,
Yet the poor are first to know you,
Shepherd for us all,
Shepherd for us all.

4 Long have we waited,
Longing for your face;
Now we are sated
By your full embrace.
Food and drink for all who hunger,
We believe, adore and wonder,
Nurtured by your grace,
Nurtured by your grace.
