​Verse 1:

While shepherds watched their flocks by night, 
all seated on the ground; 
the angel of the Lord came down, 
and glory shone around, 
and glory shone around. 

Verse 2:
"Fear not!" said he, for mighty dread 
had seized their troubled mind. 
"Glad tidings of great joy I bring 
to all of humankind, 
to all of humankind." 


​"To you, in David's town, this day 
is born of David's line 
a Savior, who is Christ the Lord, 
and this shall be the sign, 
and this shall be the sign:"
