|Text:||While Shepherds Watched Their Flocks|
|Composer:||George Frederick Handel|
1 While shepherds watched their flocks by night,
All seated on the ground,
The angel of the Lord came down,
And glory shone around,
And glory shone around.
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,
To you and all mankind."
3 "To you, in David's town, this day
Is born, of David's line,
The Savior who is Christ the Lord;
And this shall be the sign,
And this shall be the sign:"
4 "The heavenly Babe you there shall find
To human view displayed,
All meanly wrapped in swathing bands,
And in a manger laid,
And in a manger laid."
5 All glory be to God on high,
And to the earth be peace;
Good will henceforth from heaven to all,
Begin and never cease,
Begin and never cease.
