Shepherds left their flocks astraying

Representative Text

1. Shepherds left their flocks astraying,
God's command with joy obeying,
When they heard the angel saying:
"Christ is born in Bethlehem."

2. Wise men came from far and saw Him,
Knelt in homage to adore Him;
Precious gifts they laid before Him:
Gold and frankincense and myrrh.

3. Let us now in every nation
Sing His praise with exultation.
All the world shall find salvation
In the birth of Mary's son.
