Shepherds, rejoice! Lift up your eyes And send your fears away.
News from the regions of the skies, Salvation’s born today.
Jesus the God whom angels fear comes down to dwell with you;
Today he makes his entrance here, but not as monarchs do.
Glory to God that reigns above! Let peace surround the earth On this first Christmas morn.
Mortals shall know their maker’s love at their Redeemer’s birth, For there’s a Savior born.
No gold nor purple swaddling bands. Nor royal shining things;
A manger for his cradle stands, and holds the King of Kings.
Go shepherds where the infant lies and see his humble throne.
With tears of joy in all your eyes, go shepherds, kiss the Son
