NATIVITY OF CHRIST




Ye shepherds, lend a listening ear
To what the angels say;
They bring good tidings from afar,
And wondrous news convey.


To you, in Bethlehemís lonely town,
A Saviourís born to-day;
Go, view the heir of Davidís crown,
And there your homage pay.


Behold the stranger, and adore
The mercy, love and grace,
Attested now, decreed before
For Adamís ruined race.


Glory to God in lofty strains,
At the Redeemerís birth;
Let joy spread throí the heavenly plains,
And peace abound on earth.


Let every heart and every tongue
Diffuse his praise abroad;
Shepherds, begin the rapturous song,
All hail, Incarnate Lord.
