Full Text

1 While shepherds watched their flocks one night,
In Judea far away,
The sky was filled with a wonderful light,
And they heard an angel say:
"Fear not, for behold, I bring
Glad tidings of great joy,
For unto you is born this day
A Savior, Christ the Lord."

2 "Ye shall find the Bab in a manger laid,
In the town of Bethlehem."
A host of angels from heaven sang,
As the seeking shepherds came:
"Glory to God in the highest!"
The joyful chorus rang,
"Glory to God in the highest,
peace on earth, good-will tow'rd men."
