Herdsmen keeping lonely vigil

Hymnal: Hymns of the Early Church #50 (1913) Meter: 8.7.8.7.7.7 Hymnal Title: Hymns of the Early Church Lyrics: Herdsmen keeping lonely vigil While the earth in slumber lay; Eager scanned the far horizon, For the coming of the day; And a blaze of heavenly light, Rent the curtains of the night. Never shone a morn so radiant Since creation had its birth, And the orb of day in fulness Shed its primal light on earth, And the morning stars abroad, Triumphed with the sons of God. Stay your coming, dawn and sunrise, For a Sun of high renown Pours His light upon our darkness, And this Orb shall ne'er go down; Now Immanuel, Christ our Lord, Dwells on earth, Incarnate Word. 51 Lift your eyes, ye lonely watchers, See the host in raiment white; List, the strains of heavenly music Mingling with transcendent light; Ne'er such music waked a morn; Sons of men! the Christ is born. Weary hearts that dwell in darkness! Cast your dismal fears away; Lo, the Sun on earth is shining, For the morn has risen today, And the light that hailed His birth, Pours its glory on the earth.

Herdsmen Keeping Lonely Vigil

Author: John Brownlie Hymnal: The Cyber Hymnal #10349 Meter: 8.7.8.7.7.7 Hymnal Title: The Cyber Hymnal Lyrics: 1 Herdsmen keeping lonely vigil While the earth in slumber lay; Eager scanned the far horizon, For the coming of the day; And a blaze of heavenly light, Rent the curtains of the night. 2 Never shone a morn so radiant Since creation had its birth, And the orb of day in fullness Shed its primal light on earth, And the morning stars abroad, Triumphed with the sons of God. 3 Stay your coming, dawn and sunrise, For a Sun of high renown Pours His light upon our darkness, And this Orb shall ne’er go down; Now Immanuel, Christ our Lord, Dwells on earth, Incarnate Word. Lift your eyes, ye lonely watchers, See the host in raiment white; List, the strains of heavenly music Mingling with transcendent light; Ne’er such music waked a morn; Sons of men! the Christ is born. 4 Weary hearts that dwell in darkness! Cast your dismal fears away; Lo, the Sun on earth is shining, For the morn has risen today, And the light that hailed His birth, Pours its glory on the earth. Languages: English Tune Title: TAUNTON
