Hymn/Song Information

Shepherds in the field abiding




Shepherds in the field abiding,
Tell us when the seraph bright
Greeted you with wondrous tiding,
What you saw and heard that night.

Gloria, in excelsis Deo!
Gloria, in excelsis Deo!



We beheld—it is no fable—
God incarnate, King of bliss,
Swathed and cradled in a stable,
And the angel strain was this:

Gloria, in excelsis Deo!
Gloria, in excelsis Deo!



Choristers on high were singing
Jesus and His virgin birth,
Heavenly bells the while a-ringing
“Peace, good will to men on earth.”

Gloria, in excelsis Deo!
Gloria, in excelsis Deo!



Thanks, good herdmen;
true your story;
Have with you to Bethlehem:
Angels hymn the King of Glory;
Carol we with you and them:
Gloria in excelsis Deo.

Gloria, in excelsis Deo!
Gloria, in excelsis Deo!
