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

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]
