WHILE SHEPHERDS WATCHED THEIR FLOCKS BY NIGHT

1.WHILE shepherds watched their flocks by night,
All  seated on  the  ground,
The angel of the Lord came down,
And glory shorn around.

2.Fear not ! said he; for mighty dread
Had siezed thier troubled mind :
Glad tidings of great Joy i bring
To you and all  mankind.

3.To you, In David's town, this day
Is born, of David's line,
A Saviour, who la Christ the Lord;
And this shall be the sign :

4.The heavenly Babe you there shall
And To human view displayed,
All meanly wrapped in swaddling bands
And in a manger laid.

5.Thus spake the seraph; and forth¬with
Appeared a shining throng
Of angels praising God, and thus
Addressed their joyful song :

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