Representative Text

1 On dewy plain where shepherds were abiding,
Beside their flocks, with tender, watchful eye;
Awoke the song, the still, night air dividing,
The song of angels rang thro’ the starlit sky.

Refrain:
Glad angel voices from thy domain,
Strike thy full chorus, repeat thy sweet refrain,
Fair spirits, hover near each happy throng,
This day assembled, to sing thy Christmas song.

2 In lowly stall a new born Babe was sleeping,
While dumb, meek kine unheeding stand around,
A mother’s love her watchful vigils keeping
While thro’ the night air glad angels voices sound. [Refrain]

3 O starlight night, how sweet thy music ringing!
How blest the truth, the story of His birth!
O angel throng, thro’ heaven’s arches winging,
May the grand chorus re-echo round the earth! [Refrain]
