The angel said, "Don't be afraid.
I'm here to announce a great and joyful event
that is meant for everybody, worldwide:
A Savior has just been born in David's town,
a Savior who is Messiah and Master."
"Glory to God in the heavenly heights,
Peace to all men and women on earth who please Him."
"With my own eyes I've seen Your salvation; it's now out in the open for everyone to see: A God-revealing light to the non-Jewish nations, and of glory for your people Israel."
So quietly You came.
Lord of all.
Angels threw a surprise party for shepherds,
sharing the life-changing, world-rocking news:
You came for everyone,
young virgins, faithful young men,
shepherds, old men, old women,
Gentiles and Jews.
You came for me and for them.
Oh that I will run with the shepherds —
proclaim with Simeon and Anna —
God is with us!
Oh come, let us adore Him!
