Far & Wide All The Earth

1. Far & wide all the earth is
fulfilled wi’ gladness,
Viewing God from above in this valley o’ sadness:
Lo! the gifts that the Kings out of Orient bear me,
While the heavens by tongue of a starlet declare me.
2. Angel armies in worship are
caroling o’er me;
Fro’ the land the good herdmen in wonder adore me.
For a fiery throne, I am laid in a manger:
Mother, sing; for ye see me on earth here a stranger.
