Connie Smith — While Shepherds Watched Their Flocks lyrics

While shepherds watched their flocks by night all seated on the ground
The angel of the Lord came down and glory shone around 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
The Saviour 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
All glory be to God on high and to the earth be peace
Good will henceforth from heaven to men begin and never cease begin and never cease
