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 earthMortals shall know of their redeemer’s birth”
