70. 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]
