The Shepherds

Angels lead us through the night
With a pure and holy light,
Reaching down from up above,
Lifting up our hearts with love.

Gloria in excelsis Deo,
Et in terra pax hominibus bonae voluntatis.

Have no fear, the angels say,
Walk by light and faith today,
Following, we shepherds walk,
Young lambs of our Savior's flock.

Gloria in excelsis Deo,
Et in terra pax hominibus bonae voluntatis.

Light surrounds the manger stall,
See the Savior born for all,
Born to free us from our sin,
Our new light, new life within.

Gloria in excelsis Deo,
Et in terra pax hominibus bonae voluntatis.

Rich Tassinari 12/10/2012
(Glory to God on high,
And on earth peace to men of good will.)

About the Poet
Husband, father, grandfather, and each title is my joy. As a youth, poetry was a means to express the inexpressable. I was attracted to (and still am) the beauty and brevity of verse. All flows out from God, and like a proper prayer, can flow back.
