Glory to God in the Highest

That night there were shepherds staying in the fields nearby, guarding their flocks of sheep. Suddenly an angel of the Lord appeared among them and the radiance of the Lord's glory shone around them. They were terrified, but the angel reassured them. "Don't be afraid!" he said. "I bring you good news that will bring great joy to all people. The Savior--yes the Messiah, the Lord--has been born today in Bethlehem, the City of David. And you will recognize him by this sign: you will find the baby wrapped snuggly in strips of cloth, lying in a manger."

Suddenly, the angel was joined by a whole host of others--the armies of heaven, praising God and saying:
"Glory to God in the highest heaven, and peace on earth to those with whom God is pleased."
