The Bible records that after the shepherds had seen the newborn Messiah, they returned to their fields "glorifying and praising God for all the things they had heard and seen." This anthem abounds with the energy and joy that surrounded those shepherds on their return from Bethlehem. If you are looking for a celebrative spiritual that will energize your Christmas concert or worship, this is it! (From the cantata, How Great Our Joy! SATB - 65/1963L; SAB - 65/1964L).
