2096. Rise Up, Shepherd, and Follow (There's a Star in the East)

1 There’s a star in the east on Christmas morn;
Rise up, shepherd, and follow;
It will lead to the place where the Christ was born;
rise up, shepherd, and follow.

Refrain:
Follow, follow,
rise up, shepherd, and follow,
follow the star of Bethlehem.
Rise up, shepherd, and follow.

2 If you take good heed to the angel’s words;
rise up, shepherd, and follow.
you’ll forget your flocks, you’ll forget your herds;
Rise up, shepherd, and follow. [Refrain]
