While Shepherds Watched their Flocks by Night

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 mind;
“Glad tidings of great joy I bring,
To you and all mankind.”

“To you in David’s town this day
Is born of David’s line,
A Saviour who is Christ the Lord,
And this shall be the sign.”

“All glory be to God on high,
And to the earth be peace;
Good-will henceforth from heaven to men,
Begin and never cease.”
