The Shepherds Amazed

West Gallery Music


1. The shepherds a-maz-ed the angel behold,
Declare the glad tides of the morn,
The time is fulfilled the prophets foretold,
And Christ your redeemer, Christ your redeemer is born.

CHORUS (After each verse)
All glory and honour to God our creator
Who came from his glory on high,
In humble submission took him on our nature
That we might partake of his joy, of his joy, that we might partake of his joy.

2. Behold in a manger the Lord he is laid,
I come the glad tidings to bring,
Go seek him ye shepherds, and be not afraid,
He is your Redeemer, Is your Redeemer and King.

3. In Bethlehem city the prophets agree
A Virgin should bring forth a Son
Go haste to the stall ye shepherds and see him,
For as it was said, As it was said it is done.

4. The shepherds o-bey-ed and they did espy
The angel most sweetley did sing,
Let us join their songs to the great God on high,
For sending our Saviour, Sending our Saviour and King.
