spreading the gospel
The brilliant light from the angels is gone.
The shepherds make haste on their way
The Savior is born, to the stable they run
To find the child who is Christ the Lord.
A young shepherd boy who hurries along
Wonders aloud and his father he asks:
“Who is this baby and what will He do?
What will our Savior be like?”
“Prophets of old have said He is a King.
He is the Son of God.
Wonderful Counselor, Prince of Peace
And He will Shepherd His flock.”
In a dark stable they find what they seek
Mother and Father are watching their child
Eager the young boy draws closer to look
And then the questions begin:
“Are you a shepherd too?” he asks the man.
“No, I am just a low carpenter.”
“How will He learn then to shepherd His flock?”
“His Father will teach Him I’m sure.”
“Why don’t you tell Him what you have learned?”
The mother persuades him to share.
“Then carefully listen, remember my words
And hold them always close to your heart.
"A shepherd who’s good will know each sheep.
The sheep will know the sound of your voice.
Gather them and be sure not one is lost
If one is not there, search till it’s found.
"Watch over and take good care of your flock
Carry the little ones close to your heart.
Lead them to good pasture, water that’s still.
And be sure to give them time to rest.
"Save them! Rescue them from any danger
Especially when storms in life come.
Be gentle when you lead your sheep
To the safe places, so they won’t fear.
"If one is injured, bind up its wound.
Watch over the weak ones and help them grow strong.
Don’t leave your flock or run away.
Take care of them always for you love your sheep,
"Love them so much that you’ll lay down your life.
Always be willing to die.
Will you lay down your life for your sheep?
And will you do this all for me?”
The Little Lord Jesus awakes all at once.
The Light of the World shines brightly that night.
The shepherd’s eyes beam, knowing he’s loved.
Holding his hands to his heart—he smiles.
Look to the manger and open your heart.
The Savior is calling to you.
He will forgive you and calm all your fears.
The Light of the World still shines brightly this night.
