Hear the voices of the angels,
Speak that starry night,
Telling shepherds of the Christ child,
Come from heaven's light.

See the shepherds at the manger
Greeting Christ the Lord.
Sent by angels to behold Him,
Jesus they adored.

And the cattle sitting quietly,
Watched with interest there.
Saw the shepherds standing 'round Him;
Saw their special care.

Wrapped in cloths, the tiny Baby,
Rested in the straw,
Gently cared for by His mother -
All His needs she bore.

Glory in the highest heaven
Be to Christ who came.
And this Christmas time we praise Him;
His salvation claim.
