1. Angels from heaven in the silent night,
Sang to the shepherds with their voices bright,
"Wake up shepherds, time is fleeting!
Tell your lambs to stop their bleating!
Find the Wondrous Child!"

2. Trusting and eager, they searched for the Child;
Found him in a manger, Babe and Mother mild;
Happily they bowed before him,
Piping praise they all adored him,
Jesus Wondrous Child.

3. Come all you people, come to find our King;
come to the stable, hearts as offering;
Can't you hear the shepherds singing,
Can't you hear the joybells ringing
for our Wondrous Child?

4. Angels from heaven in the silent night,
Sang to the shepherds with their voices bright,
Angels singing, bells a-ringing,
All their joyful sounds are bringing to our Wondrous Child,
to our Wondrous Child.
