215. While by the Sheep we Watched at Night

1 While by the sheep we watched at night,
glad tidings brought an angel bright.

Refrain:
How great our joy! Great our joy!
Joy, joy, joy! Joy, joy, joy!
Praise we the Lord in heav'n on high!
Praise we the Lord in heav'n on high!

2 There shall be born, so he did say,
in Bethlehem a child today. [Refrain]

3 There shall the child lie in a stall,
this child who shall redeem us all. [Refrain]

4 This gift of God we’ll cherish well,
that ever joy our hearts shall fill. [Refrain]
