Shepherds Arise

Shepherds arise

Shepherds arise be not afraid,
with hasty steps repair
to David’s city, sing all earth,
with our blest infant there,
with our blest infant there,
with our blest infant there.

Sing, sing all earth,
sing, sing all earth,
eternal praises sing to our redeemer,
to our redeemer and our heav’nly king.

Laid in a manger view a child,
humility divine,
sweet innocence how meek and mild,
grace in his features shine,
grace in his features shine,
grace in his features shine.

Sing, sing all earth,
sing, sing all earth,
eternal praises sing to our redeemer,
to our redeemer and our heav’nly king.

For us the Saviour came on earth,
For us His life He gave,
To save us from eternal death
And to raise us from the grave.
To raise us from the grave
To raise us from the grave.

Sing, sing all earth,
sing, sing all earth,
eternal praises sing to our redeemer,
to our redeemer and our heav’nly king.

Hear Jon Boden and friends do a great a capella job of this traditional folk carol here.
