Alternate Title: See! The Morning Star Is Dwelling
Source: Henry Ramsden Bramley and John Stainer, Christmas Carols New and Old (London: Novello, Ewer & Co., ca 1878), Carol# 62.
1. See! the morning star is dwelling
On the Eastern mountains' height;
See! the Day all days excelling
Upon our arching sight!
Sing we then our carol free,
Christus natus hodie, hodie,
Christus natus hodie.
2. Long our watch has been and dreary;
Long we've wander'd from afar,
So the Wisemen, worn and weary,
Followed still the leading star:
Till the Day-spring's self they see. Chorus
3. Hence! away, all care and sadness,
Hence, and ne'er return again.
Angels sing with notes of gladness,
"Peace on earth, good-will to men."
Join we then in carol free. Chorus
