Rise Up, Shepherd, and Follow

Representative Text

1 There’s a star in the East
on Christmas morn;
Rise up, shepherd, and follow;
It will lead to the place
where the Christ was born;
Rise up, shepherd and follow.

Refrain:
Follow, follow;
Rise up, shepherd, and follow.
Follow the Star of Bethlehem;
Rise up, shepherd, and follow.

2 Leave your sheep, leave your sheep,
and leave your lambs;
Rise up, shepherd, and follow;
Leave your ewes and your rams,
leave your ewes and rams;
Rise up, shepherd and follow. [Refrain]

3 If you take good heed
to the angel’s words;
Rise up, shepherd, and follow;
You’ll forget your flocks,
you’ll forget your herds;
Rise up, shepherd and follow. [Refrain]
