And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, and keeping watch over their flock by night. And lo! an angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them; and they feared with great fear. And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold! I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all the people. For to you, in the city of David, is born this day a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. And this is a sign to you: ye shall find a babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host, praising God, and saying, Glory to God in the highest; and on earth peace; among men good will.
GLORIFICATION 4. WORTHY IS THE LAMB.
And I beheld, and I heard a voice of many angels around the throne and the animals and the elders : and the number of them was ten thousands of ten thousands and thousands of thousands; saying, with a great voice, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain, to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and might, and honor, and glory, and blessing! And every creature which is in heaven, and upon the earth, and underneath the earth, and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, heard I saying, Blessing and honor and glory and strength be unto Him that sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb, for ever and ever! And the four ani. mals said, Amen: and the elders fell down and worshipped.
