Johnny Cash – We Are The Shepherds lyrics

So here is the stable and there is the manger

The new Saviour sleeps on his first earthly night

The wise men brought riches but we brought a candle

It's all that we have but it gives a good light

We are the shepherds we walked cross the mountains

We left our flocks when the new star appeard

Oh the beautiful singin' of heavenly choir

We had to come see him we had to come here

We beg you forgive us for such a small offering

But our sheep are out there with wolves in the night

We bring you this candle it's all we have with us

But with it the new Saviour has his first light

We are the shepherds...

We thank Thee kind Joseph for bidding us enter

Please take our gift for the new babe to thine

'Tis only one candle but it is our symbol

Of how we believe that his great life will shine

We are the shepherds...
