Angels Announcing Christ’s Birth to the Shepherds
Govert Flinck, 1639

Do you know the song
That the an­gels sang
On that night in the long ago,
When the hea­vens above
With their mu­sic rang
Till it ech­oed in the earth be­low?


All glo­ry in the high­est,
Peace on earth, good­will to men,
Glory in the high­est,
Peace, good­will to men;
Glory in the high­est,
Glory in the high­est,
Peace on earth, good­will to men.

Do you know the song
That the shep­herds heard
As they watched o’er their flocks by night,
When the skies bent down,
And their hearts were stirred
By the voic­es of the an­gels bright?


Do you know the sto­ry
That the wise men learn­èd
As they jour­neyed from the east afar,
O’er a path­way plain,
For there night­ly burn­èd
In their sight a glo­ri­ous guid­ing star?
