183. The Angels' Hymn

1. Fear not, fear not, O ye shepherds,
Rather give ye thanks and sing,
For to you and to all people
Tidings of great joy I bring.

Glory, glory in the highest!
Unto God let praise increase!
Glory, glory in the highest!
Unto men good-will and peace!

2. For in yonder town of David—
Seek ye there with one accord—
There is born to you a Savior
Which is even Christ the Lord. [Refrain]

3. This the sign by which to know Him,
Seek ye, then, be not afraid—
Ye shall find a Babe in Bethl’em,
In a lowly manger laid. [Refrain]
