While By My Sheep I Watched At Night lyrics:

While by my sheep I watched at night
Glad tidings brought an angel bright:

Refrain:
How great my joy, great my joy
Joy, joy joy
Joy, joy joy
Praise we the Lord in heaven on high
Praise we the Lord in heaven on high.

There shall be born, so He did say
In Bethlehem a Child today:

Refrain:
How great my joy, great my joy
Joy, joy joy
Joy, joy joy
Praise we the Lord in heaven on high
Praise we the Lord in heaven on high.

There shall He lie in manger mean
Who shall redeem the world from sin:

Refrain:
How great my joy, great my joy
Joy, joy joy
Joy, joy joy
Praise we the Lord in heaven on high
Praise we the Lord in heaven on high.

This gift of God we'll cherish well
That ever joy my heart shall fill.

Refrain:
How great my joy, great my joy
Joy, joy joy
Joy, joy joy
Praise we the Lord in heaven on high
Praise we the Lord in heaven on high.

Lord, evermore to me be nigh
Then shall my heart be filled with joy!

Refrain:
How great my joy, great my joy
Joy, joy joy
Joy, joy joy
Praise we the Lord in heaven on high
Praise we the Lord in heaven on high.

German: Als ich bei meinen Schafen wacht

Als ich bei meinen Schafen wach
Ein Engel mir die Botschaft bracht.

Refrain:
Des bin ich froh
Bin ich froh
Froh, froh, froh
Froh, Froh, froh!
Benedicamus Domino
Benedicamus Domino.

Er sagt es soll geboren sein
Zu Bethlehem ein Kindelein.

Refrain:
Des bin ich froh
Bin ich froh
Froh, froh, froh
Froh, Froh, froh!
Benedicamus Domino
Benedicamus Domino.

Er sagt das Kind lag da im Stall
Und sollt die Welt erlösen all.

Refrain:
Des bin ich froh
Bin ich froh
Froh, froh, froh
Froh, Froh, froh!
Benedicamus Domino
Benedicamus Domino.

Den Schatz muss ich bewahren wohl
So bleibt mein Herz der Freude voll.

Refrain:
Des bin ich froh
Bin ich froh
Froh, froh, froh
Froh, Froh, froh!
Benedicamus Domino
Benedicamus Domino.
