Shepherds, arise! be not afraid, with hasty steps repair
To David's city, sing all earth,
Unto our blest Infant—unto our blest Infant there,
To our blest Infant there, to our blest Infant there.
Sing, sing, all earth, sing, sing, all earth eternal praises sing
Unto our Redeemer, unto our Redeemer and our heavenly King.

Laid in a manger view the Child, humility Divine,
Sweet innocence, how meek and mild.
Grace in his features—grace in his features shines,
Grace in his features shines, grace in his features shines.
Sing, sing, all earth, sing, sing, all earth eternal praises sing

Unto our Redeemer, unto our Redeemer and our heavenly 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—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
Unto our Redeemer, unto our Redeemer and our heavenly King.

To Jesus Christ our glorious king be endless praises given.
Let all on earth his mercies sing,
who made our peace in heaven, who made our peace in heaven,
who made our peace in heaven
Sing, sing, all earth, sing, sing, all earth eternal praises sing
Unto our Redeemer, unto our Redeemer and our heavenly King.

How can anyone hear the exultant joy for ALL mankind that is expressed in this medieval carol without feeling something valuable about The Gospel Good News has been lost by a church which has become more intent on making sure its 'righteousness club members' are suitably 'straight' than in celebrating the fact that God's reconciliation extends to ALL mankind and just lovingly awaits a joyful response, in the hope of restoration and 'peace on earth' ?

Regards Chris.
Love covers a multitude of sins. 1 Pet.4:8b.
