Words: Margaret Ford
stars are brightly shining,
Above a peaceful plain,
While shepherds watch and listen,
To hear a glad refrain.
The angels sing the message,
"Good-will on earth we bring,
The Prince of Peace we herald now,
Your Saviour and your King."
wise men, too, are watching
The star that shall arise!
In glorious beauty lighting
The midnight darkened skies. Chorus
the whole world the summons
Comes from the sky to earth,
"Awake, and give your homage,
Proclaim the Saviour's birth." Chorus
Music from Rev. Charles L. Hutchins, Carols Old and Carols
(Boston: Parish Choir, 1916), Carol 459
