A Christmas anthem for SATB choir with piano accompaniment. Text by Isaac Watts, setting J. Bruce Ashton. Parts available for percussion players. (octavo)
Shepherds, rejoice! lift up your eyes,
And send your fears away.
News from the regions of the skies,
A Savior is born to day.
Jesus the God whom angels fear
Comes down to dwell with you.
Today he makes His entrance here,
But not as monarchs do.
No gold or purple swaddling bands,
Nor royal shining things
A manger for His cradle stands,
And holds the King of Kings.
Go, shepherd where the infant lies,
And see His humble throne.
The tears of joy in all your eyes,
Go, shepherd, kiss the Son.
Glory to God Who reigns above,
Let peace surround the earth,
Mortals shall know their Maker’s love
At their Redeemer’s birth.
– by Isaac Watts
