Hymn/Song Information

While humble shepherds watched their




While humble shepherds watched their flocks
in Bethlehímís plains by night,
An angel sent from heavín appeared,
and filled the plains with light.


Fear not, he said, (for sudden dread
had seized their troubled mind;)
Glad tidings of great joy I bring
to you, and all mankind.


To you, in Davidís town, this day
is born, of Davidís line,
The Saviour, who is Christ the Lord;
and this shall be the sign:


The heavínly Babe you there shall find
to human view displayed,
All meanly wrapt in swaddling-bands,
and in a manger laid.


Thus spake the seraph; and forthwith
appeared a shining throng
Of angels, praising God; and thus
addressed their joyful song:


All glory be to God on high,
and to the earth be peace;
Good-will is shown by Heavín to men,
and never more shall cease.
