Lyrics
Shepherds were watching their sheep in the night near Bethlehem town long ago.
The stars were especially brilliant to see; why one was so bright who would know?
Then suddenly angelic choristers came and frightened the poor shepherds so.
Their message was peace and goodwill to all men, and beckoned t'ward Bethlehem go.

Angelic voices soon faded away, no trace could be heard in the night.
The shepherds could scarcely believe they had heard or seen such a beautiful sight.
The angels had told of the birth of a King with wisdom and power and might.
The shepherds then hurried to Bethlehem town; His star was their guide and their light.

Quietly, humbly the shepherds came near the stable alongside the inn.
The Christ child was there in a manger so rude, yes, here would God's plan now begin.
A plan for all people to serve Him in truth, protect them from evil and sin.
The shepherds rejoiced, the Messiah had come, their souls and their hearts He did win!

Friend, now consider this story of old, of Jesus the Savior who came
To call for the sinner, the meek and the lost; salvation is found in His name.
The angels proclaimed it, the shepherds affirmed His glory and power and fame.
He's coming again and will rapture His own: praise God for His wonderful name!

Chorus:
Glory to God in the highest above! Triumphant hosannas we sing!
Our Lord and King is born this day, glad tidings of joy we bring.
Peace on earth, goodwill to all men! Our voices triumphant shall ring!
Rejoice! Rejoice! Rejoice! Rejoice! All praise to our Lord and King!
