The happy day at last has dawned
Long awaited by all kindred
When the promised Saviour appears
Here on earth in human form.

Shepherds in the fields abiding
Watching over their flocks by night
First e'er, the glad tidings were told
Glad tidings of the Saviour's birth

Angel's God's ministering spirits
Who came in shining white app'rel
Brought to them the blessed message,
The true, glad tidings of great joy.

A mighty dread had seized their mind
Because of this strange sight they saw
''Fear not'' was the comforting words
That came from the angelic lips

VERSE 5

Christ the Saviour is born today
Yet Christ the Lord on earth is He
In David's city is He born
In a humble manger forlon.

VERSE 6

All glory be to God on high`
Will be the chorus by all clime
For his tender and endless love
That to a world in need brought peace. Amen.
