In the same region there were Shepherds
out in the field,
keeping watch over their flock by night.
and an angel of the LORD appeared to them,
and the glory of the Lord shone around them,
and they were filled with great fear.
And the angel said to them, "Fear not, for behold,
I bring you good news of great joy which will be for all
For unto you is born this day in the City of David
a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.
And this will be a sign for you: you will find a baby
wrapped in swaddling cloths and lying in a manger."
And suddenly there was with the Angel a multitude
of the heavenly host, praising God and saying,
"Glory to God in the highest,
and on earth peace among those with whom He is pleased!" -Luke 2:8-14
