HYMN 4 PART 1 The nativity of Christ. Luke 2:10ff

C. M.

The nativity of Christ.
Luke 2:10ff

|Shepherds, rejoice! lift up your eyes,

And send your fears away;

News from the regions of the skies,

Salvation's born to-day.

|Jesus, the God whom angels fear,

Comes down to dwell with you;

Today he makes his entrance here,

But not as monarchs do.

|No gold nor purple swaddling bands.

Nor royal shining things;

A manger for his Cradle stands,

And holds the King of kings.

|Go, shepherds, where the infant lies,

And see his humble throne

With tears of joy in all your eyes,

Go, shepherds, kiss the Son.|

Thus Gabriel sang, and straight around

The heav'nly armies throng;

They tune their harps to lofty sound,

And thus conclude the song:

|Glory to God that reigns above!

Let peace surround the earth!

Mortals shall know their Maker's love,

At their Redeemer's birth.|

Lord, and shall angels have their songs,

And men no tunes to raise?

O may we lose our useless tongues

When they forget to praise.

Glory to God that reigns above,

That pitied us forlorn;

We join to sing our Maker's love,

For there's a Savior born.
