Hymn/Song Information

THE GOOD SHEPHERD NOW IS BORN




Behold, the joyful day is nigh,
And angels’ voices from on high
Proclaim the news in early morn
That the Good Shepherd now is born.


In quiet splendour forth He comes,
The scattered sheep and tender lambs
To gather, and their fold prepare
With all a shepherd’s tender care.


The gentle Shepherd we behold
Who, not with silver and with gold,
But by His suffering and His death
Will save us from eternal wrath.


His Church, though small its seed may be,
Shall grow into a mighty tree.
With fruitful branches spreading o’er
The earth till time shall be no more.


Arise and shine, thy Light is come,
O humankind, O Christendom;
Thy glory and thy peace is here;
The Saviour of the world draws near.


All praise and glory be to Thee;
For wisdom, power, and majesty;
And for Thy grace, and mercy, Lord,
Forever be Thy Name adored.
