138. Glad Tidings of Great Joy

1 While shepherds watch’d their flocks by night,
All seated on the ground,
The angel of the Lord came down,
And glory shone around.

Refrain:
Glad tidings,
Glad tidings to all mankind I bring,
Glad tidings,
Glad tidings to all mankind I bring.

2 Fear not, said he, for mighty dread
Had seized their troubled mind.
Glad tidings of great joy I bring
To you and all mankind. [Refrain]

3 All glory be to God on high,
And to the Earth be peace,
Goodwill henceforth from heav’n to men
Begin and never cease. [Refrain]
