Shepherds, O hark ye, glad tidings we bring,
Peace and goodwill to the world now we sing;
See in a manger Christ the Anointed,
Whom for your Saviour God hath appointed.

Jesus so holy, so radiant and fair,
For us Thou liest in stable so bare;
Seeking Thy mercy, we kneel before Thee,
Singing Thy praises, humbly adore thee.

Still through the ages the song doth resound,
Peace and goodwill on the earth shall abound;
Bear we the tidings to every nation,
Born is the Chirst Child for man’s salvation.
