Christmas Songs – While By My Sheep I Watched At Night lyrics

While by my sheep I watched at night,
Glad tidings brought an angel bright:

How great my joy, great my 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.

There shall be born, so He did say,
In Bethlehem a Child today:


There shall He lie in manger mean,
Who shall redeem the world from sin:


This gift of God we'll cherish well,
That ever joy my heart shall fill.


Lord, evermore to me be nigh,
Then shall my heart be filled with joy!
