The Second Day of Christmas

Angels Announcing Christ's Birth to the Shepherds  Govert Flinck

Angels Announcing the Birth of our Savior
Benjamin West
Luke 2:8-1
Now there were in the same country 
shepherds living out in the fields, 
keeping watch over their flock by night. 
And behold, an angel of the Lord stood before them,
and the glory of the Lord shone around them,
and they were greatly afraid. 
Then the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid, 
Nativity Scene  Anton Raphael Mengs
for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people.  
For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, 
who is Christ the Lord. 
And this will be the sign to you: 
You will find a Babe 
wrapped in swaddling cloths, 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, goodwill toward men!”
