Come Now Ye Shepherds Away From Your Fold
Come now, ye shepherds, away from your fold,
Come, the dear lovable child to behold;
Gaze with delight on Christ, the Anointed,
By God as Savior for us appointed,
Banish all fear!
Yea, let us witness in Bethlehem’s stall
What we have heard through the heavenly call;
There, with glad voices, publish the story,
Sing of the Savior’s wonderful glory.
Truly the angels are singing today
Unto the shepherds this beautiful lay:
Peace in its fulness to you is granted,
Good will to mortals in all hearts planted.
Glory to God!
