  			  C                       F     C 
While shepherds watched their flocks by night, 
 C            Dm    G 
All seated on the ground, 
 G     C7 Dm  G   C 
The angel of the Lord came down, 
 C   F            C 
And glory shone around, 
 Dm  C     G      C 
And glory shone around. 
"Fear not," said he (for mighty dread 
had seized their troubled mind); 
"Glad tidings of great joy I bring 
To you and all mankind, 
To you and all mankind." 
"To you in David's town this day 
Is born of David's line 
A Savior, who is Christ the Lord, 
And this shall be the sign, 
And this shall be the sign:" 
"The heavenly babe you there shall find 
To human view displayed, 
All meanly wrapped in swathing bands, 
And in a manger laid, 
And in a manger laid." 
Thus spake the seraph, and forthwith 
Appeared a shining throng 
Of angels praising God, who thus 
Addressed their joyful song, 
Addressed their joyful song: 
"All glory be to God on high, 
And to earth be peace: 
Good will to men from highest heav'n 
Begin and never cease, 
Begin and never cease." 
Words by Nahum Tate, 1700.   
Music by George F. Handel, 1728.
