1. "Shepherds, rejoice! lift up your eyes,
And drive all fears away;
And drive all fears away;
News, from the region of the skies,
News, from the region of the skies,
News, from the region of the skies,
A Saviour born today.

2. "Jesus, the God, whom angels fear,
Comes down to dwell with you;
Comes down to dwell with you;
Today He makes His entrance here,
Today He makes His entrance here,
Today He makes His entrance here,
But not as monarchs do.

3. "Go, shepherds, where the Infant lies,
And see His humble throne
And see His humble throne
With tears of joy in all your eyes,
With tears of joy in all your eyes,
With tears of joy in all your eyes,
Go, shepherds, "Kiss the Son."

4. "Glory to God, who reigns above,
Let peace surround the earth!
Let peace surround the earth!
Mortals shall know their Makerís love,
Mortals shall know their Makerís love,
Mortals shall know their Makerís love,
At their Redeemerís birth."
