Angels Sang

And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby,

Hark! The herald angels sing

keeping watch over their flocks at night

Glory to the newborn king

An angel of the Lord appeared to them

Peace on earth and mercy mild

and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified.

God and sinners reconcile

But the angel said to them, Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people.

Joyful, all ye nations rise

Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord.

Join the triumph of the skies

This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.

With the angelic host proclaim

Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel

Christ is born in Bethlehem!

praising God and saying Glory to God in the highest!

Hark! The herald angels sing

And on earth peace to men on whom his favor rests.

Glory to the newborn King!


When the angels had left them and gone into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, Let’s go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has told us about.

Luke 2:8-15

  1. Thanks for posting. A very Merry Christmas to you and your entire family. This afternoon, I’ll be posting the last in Harvest’s video series of “The Christmas Story.” It’s entitled “Emmanuel.”

  2. Hello AM, Just wanted to leave a comment here. This post was an inspiring reminder to me in realizing where my hope and joy lies.Thanks for posting this.
    I’ve been reading your blog for awhile now ,I often read them again to my husband (during the quiet moments we can steal here and there) after I have read them and we both agree that your writings are presented in such an enjoyable, simple, warm, clean and humorously entertaining way . It’s been a joy and a pleasure to have met your family in this way.
    Thanks for sharing and making small bright spots in so many others lives. I’ll be checking in here often!
    In the mean time, May the Lord bless you and may your holiday season be filled with much peace and joy.

  3. Have a wonderful Christmas! It is already Christmas morning here in New Zealand – the sun is shining, there is a hint of rain to come later in the day, however – its a beautiful day at the moment!

    And Santa has been.

  4. Merry Christmas AM! And, of course to Sean & AD. I hope it’s filled with as much fun as ours has been (and they don’t even know Santa’s been here yet!)
