While Shepherds Watched

While Shepherds Watched (Winchester Old, Organ & Trumpet Descant, 6 Verses)

While Shepherds Watched : Lyrics

1. While shepherds watched their flocks by night,
all seated on the ground;
the angel of the Lord came down,
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.”

3. “To you, in David’s town, this day
is born of David’s line
a Saviour, who is Christ the Lord,
and this shall be the sign:”

4. “The heavenly babe you there shall find
to human view displayed,
all meanly wrapped in swathing bands,
and in a manger laid.”

5. Thus spake the seraph and forthwith
appeared a shining throng
of angels praising God, who thus
addressed their joyful song:

6. “All glory be to God on high,
and to the earth be peace;
good will henceforth from heaven to men
begin and never cease!”
