The Angels and the Shepherds (Kommet, ihr Hirten, English)

See also the German original: Kommet, ihr Hirten

1. Shepherds, O hark ye, glad tidings we bring,
Peace and goodwill to the world now we sing;
See in a manger Christ the Anointed,
Whom for your Saviour God hath appointed.

2. In yonder manger behold now he lies,
Whom angel voices foretold from the skies.
Seeking thy mercy, we kneel before thee,
Singing thy praises, humbly adore thee.

3. Still through the ages the song doth resound,
Peace and goodwill on the earth shall abound.
Bear we the tidings to every nation,
Born is the Chirst Child for man’s salvation.
