While By My Sheep is a traditional Christmas carol that started at Germany in 1625.

The song first appeared on the CD, A Very Veggie Christmas sung by Junior Asparagus.

Then, he had sung it again while visiting the Holy Lands in the 1997 Young Messiah tour. This animated video would be re-used a year later in the VeggieTales Christmas Spectacular!.

Lyrics

Junior: While by my sheep, I watched at night. Glad tidings brought an angel bright. How great our joy.

Junior: Joy joy joy!

(Sheep echo)

Junior: Praise ye the Lord in Heaven on high

(Sheep echo)

Junior: There shall be born, so he did say in Bethlehem a child today. How great our joy

(Sheep echo)
Junior: Joy, joy, joy

(Sheep echo)
Junior: Praise ye the Lord in Heaven on high

(Sheep echo)
Junior: How great our joy

(Sheep echo)
Junior: Joy, joy, joy

(Sheep echo)
Junior: Praise ye the Lord in Heaven on high(x2)

(Sheep echo)
