Nahum Tate Quotes

    Whilst Shepherds Watch'D

    Whilst Shepherds watch'd their flocks by night,
    All seated on the ground,
    The Angel of the Lord came down,
    And glory shone around.
    Fear not, said he, for mighty dread
    Had seized their troubled mind,
    Glad tidings of great joy I bring
    To you and all mankind.
    To you in David's town this day
