“Exult in the Saviours Birth” is not as well known as other Christmas carols, but beautifully and very simply describes the story of Christmas. The opening of this song is simple, yet has so much meaning:
“Shepherds watch their flocks at night, attending lowly sheep.
Now within a cattle shed, a much stranger watch they keep.
Today a Saviour has been born, and he is Christ the Lord.
Placed within a humble trough, this baby must be adored.”
It describes the change seen in the shepherds as they go from watching over their lowly, insignificant sheep to kneeling before the Saviour of the world. The song continues by describing the rest of the nativity story and how it fulfils the prophecy written nearly a thousand years before:
“For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counsellor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.”
Isaiah Chapter 9 Verse 6
