This sweet Christmas song shares the point of view of the Shepherds of Bethlehem, and of all those who desire to follow Jesus as a shepherd. Lyrics by Jaroslav Vajda and Music by Carl Schalk. All Illustrations have been used with permission, or are in common use domain.
Lyrics 1.Where shepherds lately knelt and kept the angel's word, I come in half-belief, a pilgrim strangely stirred; But there is room and welcome there for me, But there is room and welcome there for me.
2.In that unlikely place I find him as they said: Sweet newborn Babe, how frail! And in a manger bed, A still small voice to cry one day for me, A still small voice to cry one day for me.
3.How should I not have known Isaiah would be there? His prophecies fulfilled, With pounding heart I stare: A child, a son, the Prince of Peace for me, A child, a son, the Prince of Peace for me.
4. Can I, will I forget how Love was born, and burned It's way into my heart unasked, unforced, unearned, To die, to live, and not alone for me, To die, to live, and not alone for me.
