As shepherds watched their flocks at night
in fields near Bethlehem,
God’s glory flashed across the sky
and angels said to them:
“All glory be to God Most High,
And peace to men on earth!
Don’t be afraid; salvation’s nigh,
Behold, the Savior’s birth!
For unto you is born today:
The source of hope and joy.
You’ll find him lying in the hay:
A little baby boy!”
