Lyrics : Glory To God In The Highest
I am but a shepherd boy watching o’er the sheep
It’s not my favorite thing to do, but it’s how I earn my keep
Still out here in the open fields beneath a cloudless sky
I must admit that this is where I really feel alive.
 
I remember another cloudless night not many years ago
We were gathered round the fire trying to beat the cold
When suddenly an angel appeared up in the air
And a light that was brighter than the sun, shone round us everywhere.
 
I lay there overcome with awe, and didn’t know what to do
Then I heard a voice say do not fear, for I have news for you
The Saviour of the world is born tonight in Bethlehem
And suddenly an angel choir began to sing.
 
Chorus:
Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace goodwill toward men
Glory to God in the highest, Let His name be praised again, and again.
Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace goodwill toward men
Glory to God in the highest, Let His name be praised again, and again.
 
When the angel finished speaking he vanished from our sight
The fear was gone and in it’s place was wonder and delight
We said let us go to Bethlehem and see this wondrous thing
Let us find this Christ child of whom the angels sing.
 
Chorus:
 
When we arrived in Bethlehem we found Him in a cave
With a stable full of animals, He was in a manger laid
I wanted to honour Him, but I didn’t have a thing
But then in my heart arose the song, I’d heard the angels sing
 
Chorus:
 
Bridge:
Spread the good news everywhere, tell every person you meet
Jesus our Saviour here, God and man are now at peace.
 
Chorus:
