Shepherds Rejoice

Shepherds rejoice and send your fears away

News from the sky: salvation born today

Jesus the god comes down to dwell with you

Today he comes, but not at monarchs do

Glory to God who reigns enthroned above

Good will to men and peace and endless love

No gold nor purple royal shining things

A manger stands and hold the king of kings

Go shepherds, go and see his humble throne

With tears of joy go shepherds kiss the son

And straight around the heavenly armies throng

They tune their harps and thus conclude their song:

“Glory to god, let peace surround the earth

Mortals shall know of their redeemer’s birth”
