Redeemed Hymn 134 – While Shepherds Watched Their Flocks by Night

“For unto you this born this day which is Christ the Lord” -Luke 2:11

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 swaddling bands

And in a manger laid


5 Thus spake the seraph; and forth-with

Appeared a shinning 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 hence forth

From heaven to men

Begin and never cease!
