Subject: Tune Req: Who kept the Sheep? (Cash)
Looking for a tune for this; I haven't been able to find it.


The shepherds afar left their flocks by night
Followed the new star by its heavenly light
Did the lambs fear the wolves
did they lay down and sleep
Who kept the sheep
who kept the sheep

Did robbers not steal or did they fear the light
That the shepherds had followed night after night
Did they not stray
did little lambs weep
who kept the sheep
who kept the sheep

Under the new star the new Saviour lay
in his dim manger he lay on the hay
The shepherds that came
had a vigil to keep
But who kept the sheep
who kept the sheep

who kept the sheep
who kept the sheep
