(Boston: Parish Choir, 1916)

1. The Angels sing around the stall
Where Jesus cradled lies,
The shepherds hear the joyful call,
That wakes the silent skies.
Hark! to the music floating by,
Ere yet its echoes cease!
Pouríd forth from Angelís minstrelsy,
Is heard the song of peace,
Pouríd forth from angelís minstrelsy,
Is heard the song of peace.

2. The Eastern kings the star have seen,
They hasten on their way;
Long hath their patient vigil been
For dawning of this day :--
The dawning of the day of grace,
The gleam of Jacobís Star,
The Virginís Child of Jesseís race,
By prophets seen afar.
The Virginís Child of Jesseís race,
By prophets seen afar.

3. And now they open treasures rare,
Which Indian silks enfold,
Of fragrant myrrh that scents the air,
Of frankincense and gold.
Their kingly heads they meekly bow,
The cradled Babe before;
Their God confess, and kneeling low
In humble faith adore.
Their God confess, and kneeling low
In humble faith adore.

4. With them I come to greet my King,
But not, like them, depart;
No gold, no frankincense I bring,
But only my poor heart.
With Him to live, with Him to die,
Who, by His lowly birth,
Gave glory to our God on high
And peace to men on earth.
Gave glory to our God on high
And peace to men on earth.
