The simple storyline repeats words and phrases, adding another sheep each time until all ten have been accounted for. Finally, they are all huddled together with the shepherd boy and starting to fall asleep when, suddenly, the starry sky is filled with light and the sound of angels singing. When the angels have left the shepherd boy and his ten little sheep go to Bethlehem and find the baby lying in a manger. There they worship Jesus, the Son of God before running back over the hills to tell the whole world that Jesus, the Saviour of the world, has been born.
