About The


This Christmas music medley by Creative Trio combines the two popular Christmas carols, While Shepherds Watched Their Flocks By Night and O Little Town Of Bethlehem. With lovely harmonies and complimenting vocal melodies, this song tells a tale of the birth of Jesus Christ our Lord. This song appears on our 2021 Christmas Album, Emmanuel: Unto Us A Child Is Born.


Emmanuel: Unto Us A Child Is Born

While shepherds watched
Their flocks by night
All seated on the ground
The angel of the Lord came down
And glory shone around

Fear not said he for mighty dread (Ahh ahh)
Had seized their troubled mind (Ahh ahh)
Glad tidings of great joy I bring (Glad tidings of joy)
To you and all mankind (Mankind)

To you in David's town this day (Ahh)
Is born of David's line (Ahh)
A Saviour who is Christ the Lord (A Saviour Christ our Lord)
And this shall be the sign

Heav'nly babe, wrapped in cloth
Lying in a manger
On display for all to see
In the town of Bethlehem

O little town of Bethlehem
How still we see thee lie
Above thy deep and dreamless sleep
The silent stars go by
Yet in thy dark streets shineth (Oooh)
The everlasting Light (Ahhh)
The hopes and fears of all the years (The hopes and fears)
Are met in thee tonight (Are met tonight)

For Christ is born of Mary
And gathered all above
While mortals sleep (While mortals sleep)
The angels keep their watch of wondering love
O morning stars together (Oooh)
Proclaim the holy birth (Ahhh)
And praises sing to God the King (The praises sing)
And peace to men on earth


O holy Child of Bethlehem
Descend to us we pray (We pray)
Cast out our sin and enter in
Be born in us today
We hear the Christmas angels (Oooh)
The great glad tidings tell (Ahhh)
O come to us abide with us (O come to us)
Our Lord Emmanuel
Our Lord Emmanuel

All glory be to God on high
And on the earth be peace
Goodwill hence forth
From heav'n to men
Begin and never cease (Never cease)
Begin and never cease
