Shepherd's Pipe Carol

Going through the hills on a night all starry
On the way to Bethlehem
Far away I heard a shepherd boy piping
On the way to Bethlehem

Angels in the sky brought this message nigh:
Dance and sing for joy that Christ the King of Kings
Is come to bring us peace on earth and he’s lying
Cradled there at Bethlehem

Tell me shepherd boy piping tunes so merrily
On the way to Bethlehem
Who will hear your tunes on these hills so lonely
On the way to Bethlehem

Angels in the sky brought this message nigh:
Dance and sing for joy that Christ the King of Kings
Is come to bring us peace on Earth and he’s lying
Cradled there at Bethlehem

None may hear my pipes on these hills so lonely
On the way to Bethlehem;
But a King will hear me play sweet lullabies
When I get to Bethlehem

Angels in the sky came down from on high
Hovered o'er the manger where the Babe was lying
Cradled in the arms of His mother Mary
Sleeping now at Bethlehem

Where is this new King, shepherd boy piping merrily
Is He there at Betlhelem
I will find him soon by the star shining brightly
In the sky o'er Bethlehem

Angels in the sky brought this message nigh:
Dance and sing for joy that Christ the King of Kings
Is come to bring us peace on Earth and he’s lying
Cradled there at Bethlehem

May I come with you shepherd boy piping merrily
Come with you to Bethlehem
Pay my homage too at the new King’s cradle
Is it far to Bethlehem

Angels in the sky brought this message nigh:
Dance and sing for joy that Christ the King of Kings
Is come this night and born in a stable lowly
born for you at Bethlehem
