a radiant halo bright,
a holy song, and flash of Angel wings;
Althwart the sleep enfolded valley rings
The Herald's song
awaited long
By seers of old whose dear feet throng
the path to Eternal light

A wave of holy gladness,
Announce God's good will toward men
Wafts o'er the hills, where certain shepherds lay
A brightness shedding radiance, lake day ---
An angel bright
Spake in the night
fear not, let nothing you affright
