Advent Devotion: Who are the Shepherds? | Ep. 096

Imagine you’re a shepherd, and you’re going out to tend to your flock, just like you do every night. You go about your shepherding duties, keep track of the sheep, making sure they’re safe. And then out of nowehere, a great light fills the sky and all around you, it’s shining bright! And an angel shows up!! Would you be afraid?

It came upon a midnight clear,
that glorious song of old,
from angels bending near the earth
to touch their harps of gold:
“Peace on the earth, goodwill to all,
from heav’n’s all-gracious king.”
The world in solemn stillness lay
to hear the angels sing.

All you, beneath your heavy load,
by care and guilt bent low,
who toil along a dreary way
with painful steps and slow:
look up, for golden is the hour,
come swiftly on the wing,
the Prince was born to bring you peace;
of Him the angels sing.

For lo, the days have come to pass
by prophets seen of old,
when down into the circling years
came Christ as was foretold.
His word of peace shall to the earth
God’s ancient promise bring,
and all who take this gift will hear
the song the angels sing.
