Shepherds Keeping Watch By Night

Refrain: Ring the merry songs today, Sweetly chime Messiah’s morn; Glad we hail this peaceful way, "Christ the Lord for man is born!" 2 Soon by many a heav’nly tongue Glory be to God was sung, Peace on earth, good will to men, Christ is born in Bethlehem. [Refrain] 3 Joyful tidings to mankind! Richest grace they now may find; Children, too, this grace may claim, Christ is born in Bethlehem. [Refrain] 4 Oh! how great His grace and love, Thus to leave His throne above; Thus to bear our guilt and shame, And be born in Bethlehem. [Refrain] 5 Lord! accept our warmest praise For this condescending grace, And our hearts with love inflame, For Thy birth in Bethlehem. [Refrain] Used With Tune: LOUVRE Text Sources: The New England Sabbath School Minstrel (Boston: New England Sabbath School Union, 1844)

[Refrain] 3 Heav’n with joy and music rang, Silvery stars broke silence then; Angel voices greeting sang— Peace on earth, good will to men. [Refrain] 4 Now once more the night comes round, Now the hour once more draws near; When that anthem’s holy sound, Falls on fancy’s listening ear. [Refrain] 5 On our hearts, oh let it thrill, Jesus there be born again; And with peace our bosoms fill, Peace on earth, good will to men. [Refrain] Used With Tune: LOUVRE Text Sources: Hymnal for Primary Classes by Edwin W. Rice (Philadelphia: American Sunday School Union, 1896)
