Shepherds watch list'ning to lambs bleat; tired backs, worn out and cold feet. All life long, living like outcasts; all life long, longing for life. A dazzling light the voice of an angel. Gripped with fear, terrified they fell. One like a man, yet awesome and holy; a face so fierce and yet strangely kind.
Do not be afraid, I've good news of great joy. Your Savior is come; He's Christ, the Lord. As a sign to you the ine born today will be wrapped in rags, asleep on the hay.
And all at once the air filled with angels. Glory shone of holiness they smelled. Glory be to God in the highest and peace on earth to all those He loves.
As a sign to you the One born today will be wrapped in rags, asleep on the hay.
