Rise Up, Shepherd and Follow

Rise Up, Shepherd and Follow

There's a star in the East on Christmas morn,
Rise up, shepherd, and follow
It'll lead to the place where the Savior's born,
Rise up, shepherd, and follow

cho: Leave your sheep and leave your lambs
     Rise up, shepherd, and follow
     Leave your ewes and leave your rams
     Rise up, shepherd, and follow
     Follow, follow
     Rise up, shepherd, and follow
     Follow the star of Bethlehem
     Rise up, shepherd, and follow

If you take good heed of the angel's words
Rise up, shepherd, and follow
You'll forget your flocks, you'll forget your herds
Rise up, shepherd, and follow
