While Shepherds Watched...

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

"Fear not," said he, for mighty dread
Had seized their troubled minds
"Glad tidings of great joy I bring
To you and all mankind
To you and all mankind"

"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"

"The heav'nly babe you there shall find
To human view displayed
All meanly wrapped in swaddling bands
And in a manger laid
And in a manger laid"
Emmanuel - God with us
