Representative Text

1 While shepherds watched their flocks by night,
From dangers that surround;
The angel of the Lord shone bright,
With glory all around.

Refrain:
"All glory to God!" the angels sing,
"Peace on earth, good will to men";
Glad tidings of great joy they bring,
All hail the star of Bethlehem!

2 The shepherds they were sore afraid,
And troubled in their mind;
"I bring," said he, in white arrayed,
"Great joy to all mankind." [Refrain]

3 "To you in Bethlehem this day
Is born of royal line,
A Savior, who is Christ, the Lord,
And this shall be a sign." [Refrain]

4 The shepherds glorified their God,
For what they saw and heard;
"Good will to all," the angels sang,
"Who love and keep His word." [Refrain]
