While shepherds watched their flocks by night, all seated on the ground,
The angel of the Lord came down and glory shone around.
On this day is born to you a Savior meek and mild,
Haste ye all to Bethlehem and kneel before the child.
Lay down your crooks and quit your flocks, to Bethlehem repair;
And let your wand'ring steps be squared by yonder shining star.
