Shepherds at Christmas

On a far away hill a glorious star shone so bright As shepherds watched their flocks at night An Angel of the Lord came down And the glory of the Lord shone around The Angel had no gold or diamond under his sleeve Nor scented beautiful roses to give He came to herald the gospel story With many angels appearing in a heavenly glory Gloria! Gloria!! The hosts of angels cry We bring you good tidings of joy from on high To you this day in the city of David a child is given To crown the earth with joy and the love of heaven When all hearts is filled And the songs of Angels are stilled When the star in the sky is gone And Christmas begins at dawn A voice was heard in the sky A glorious voice was heard from on high Shepherds heard a voice and found a Lamb They found a savior, they found the I Am The Poet Preacher © 2013 Then the Shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things that they had heard and seen, as it was told them. Luke 2:20
