Shepherds and angels proclaimed the holy Babe;
Evangelists were fervent to dilate
The good report of God come down in grace;
While now the Spirit rejoices to acclaim
Jesus the Lord in His exalted place.
Come to the world which His own hand had made
His virtue flowed even to where men lay
Weaker than weakness huddled within the grave.
Now virtue flows from Christ in majesty
Causing enlightened souls to celebrate
The Man by whom all men shall be amazed.
