That Angel and Shepherd Moment

That angel and shepherd moment
That night on the side of a hill
When the heavens poured out their glory
And showered the earth in God’s will

The stuff of myth – this improbable story
About a king born of virgin birth
The prophecies fulfilled in this moment
Changed the very fabric of earth

The angels sang; the heavens rang
The shepherd bowed their knees in awe
An angel said, “be not afraid”
So the shepherds left their flocks to worship
The infant Son of God

That angel and shepherd moment
On a hillside long ago
When messengers from heaven came
And set the winter night aglow

So we celebrate that moment
When angels held the shepherds in awe
When the mystery broke into history
To praise the newborn Son of God
