Angel 3: Here is how you will know I am telling you the truth. You will find a baby wrapped in strips of cloth and lying in a manger. Narrator 2:  Suddenly a large group of angels from heaven also appeared. They were praising God. Angel Chorus: May glory be given to God in the highest heaven! And may peace be given to those he is pleased with on earth! Narrator 3: The angels left and went back to heaven. Shepherd: Let’s go to Bethlehem. Let’s find this baby the angel told us about.
