While Shepherds Watched Their Flocks : -ghf095 - [Play Midi]
  1. While shepherds watch'd their flocks by night
    All seated on the ground
    The angel of the Lord came down,
    And glory shone around, And glory shone around.

  2. "Fear not!" said he, for mighty dread
    Had seized their troubled mind;
    "Glad tidings of great joy I bring
    To you and all mankind, to you and all mankind.

  3. "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:

  4. "The heavn'ly Babe you there shall find
    To human view displayed,
    All meanly wrapt in swathingbands
    And in a manger laid, And in a manger laid."

  5. "All glory be to God on high
    And to the earth be peace:
    Good will henceforth from heav'n to men
    Begin and never cease! Begin and never cease!"
