Rejoice 433

Tune: D. F. Stevens, 1902
Lyrics: Isaac Watts, 1707
Meter: Common Meter Double (8,6,8,6,8,6,8,6)
Shepherds, rejoice, lift up your eyes,
And send your fears away;
News from the regions of the skies,
A Savior's born today.
Jesus, the God, whom angels fear,
Comes down to dwell with you,
Today, He makes his entrance here,
But not as monarchs do.
