Rise Up, Shepherd, and Follow (There’s a Star in the East)

Lyrics to ‘Rise Up, Shepherd, and Follow (There’s a Star in the East)’, a Christmas song

1. There’s a star in the East
on Christmas morn,
rise up, shepherd, and follow;
it will lead to the place
where Christ was born;
rise up, shepherd, and follow.

Refrain:
Follow, follow,
rise up, shepherd, and follow,
follow the star of Bethlehem.
Rise up, shepherd, and follow.

2. If you take good heed
to the angel’s words;
rise up, shepherd, and follow;
you’ll forget your flocks,
you’ll forget your herds;
rise up shepherd, and follow.
(Refrain)
