2.  INCARNATION OF CHRIST

While shepherds watched their flocks by night
All seated on the ground, All seated on the ground,
The angel of the Lord came down,
And glory shone around,
And glory shone around,
And glory shone around.

"Fear not" said he (for mighty dread
Had seized their troubled mind.
Had seized their troubled mind,)
"Glad tidings of great joy I bring
To you and all mankind,
To you and all mankind,
To you and all mankind.

"All glory be to God on high,
And to the earth be peace, And to the earth be peace,
Good will henceforth, from heaven to men,
Begin and never cease,
Begin and never cease,
Begin and never cease".
