1. When an Angel host entuned
    Anthem sweet and airy
O'er the Child, meek and mild,
    Of the Virgin Mary;

2. Whe, with honey, herd-men brought
    Butter fro the dairy
To the One Holy Son
    Born of Maiden Mary;

3. When iii pilgrim kings unlockt
    Each his casket, spary
Of no thing for this King,
    God, the Son of Mary.

4. 'Glory be to God on high,
    God, who cannot vary!
Was the lay on that day
    Sung by Blessed Mary.
