I am resolved whilst here 1 lire, As I'm in duty bound, to give All glory to the Deity, One God alone in persons three.
WHILST SHEPHERDS WATCH'D.
Whilst Shepherds watch'd their flocks by night,
All seated on the ground, The Angel of the Lord came down,
And glory shone around.
Fear not, said he, for mighty dread
Had seized their troubled mind, Glad tidings of great joy I bring
To you artd all mankind.
To you in David's town this day
Is born of David's line A Saviour, which is Christ the Lord;
And this shall be the sign.
The heavenly Babe you there shall find,
To human view display'd, All meanly wrapt in swaddling bands
And in a manger laid.
