CHRISTMAS CAROLS


While Shepherds Watched Their Flocks By Night Lyrics

1. While shepherds watched their flocks by night,
All seated on the ground,
The angel of the Lord came down,
And glory shone around.
"Fear not," said he, for mighty dread
Had seized their troubled minds;
"Glad tidings of great joy I bring
To you and all mankind.
2. "To you, in David's town, this day,
Is born of David's line
A Savior, who is Christ the Lord;
And this shall be the sign:
The heavenly Babe you there shall find


To human view displayed,
All meanly wrapped in swaddling-clothes
And in a manger laid."

3. Thus spake the seraph,--and forthwith
Appeared a shining throng
Of angels, praising God, and thus
"All glory be to God on high,
And to the earth be peace;
Good will henceforth from Heaven to men
Begin and never cease."
