Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

There were shepherds abiding in the field, Keeping watch over their flock by night

Representative Text

1 There were shepherds abiding in the field,
Keeping watch over their flock by night,

2 And lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them,
And the glory of the Lord shone round about them,
And they were sore afraid.

3 And the angel said unto them, Fear not;
For behold, I bring you good tidings
Of great joy, which shall be to all people.

4 For unto you is born this day, in the city of David,
A Saviour, who is Christ the Lord.

5 And suddenly there was with the angel,
A multitude of the heavenly host, praising God, and saying:

6 Glory to God in the highest,
And on earth peace, good will to men.
