1. Saw you nev-er,

in the twi - light, When the sun had left the skies,

Up in heav'n the clear stars shin-ing Through the gloom, like sil - ver eyes?

Heard you never of the story

How they crossed the desert wild, Journeyed on by plain and mountain,

Till they found the Holy Child ? How they opened all their treasure,

Kneeling to that infant King; Gave the gold and fragrant incense,

Gave the myrrh in offering ?

3 Know ye not that lowly Baby

Was the bright and morning Star ? He Who came to light the Gentiles,

And the darkened isles afar ? And we, too, may seek His cradle;

There our hearts' best treasures bring; Love, and faith, and true devotion, For our Saviour, God, and King. Amen.

Love was born at Christ-mas, Stars and an - gels gave the sign. A-men.

2

Worship we the Godhead,

Love incarnate, Love divine;
Worship we our Jesus:

But wherewith for sacred sign?

3
Love shall be our token,

Love be yours, and love be mine,
Love to God and all men,

Love for plea and gift and sign. Amen.

CHRISTINA GEORGINA ROSETTI

O Come, All Ye Faithful

2

Sing, choirs of angels,

Sing in exultation,
Through heaven's high arches be your praises poured;

Now to our God be

Glory in the highest!
O come, let us adore Him, Christ the Lord!

3
Yea, Lord, we bless Thee,

Born for our salvation;
Jesus! forever be Thy Name adored!

Word of the Father,

Now in flesh appearing;
O come, let us adore Him, Christ the Lord! Amen.

Tr. FREDERICK OAKELEY

4
Holy Jesus, every day
Keep us in the narrow way;
And when earthly things are past,
Bring our ransomed souls at last
Where they need no star to guide,
Where no clouds Thy glory hide.

5
In the heavenly country bright
Need they no created light;
Thou its Light, its Joy, its Crown,
Thou its Sun which goes not down;
There for ever may we sing
Hallelujahs to our King. Amen.

WILLIAM CHATTERTON Dıx

3 As they offered gifts most rare At that manger rude and bare, So may we with holy joy, Pure, and free from sin's alloy, All our costliest treasures bring, Christ, to Thee, our heavenly King.

3 For troubles such as man must bear,

From childhood to fourscore,
He shared with us, that we might share

His joy for evermore;
And twice a thousand years of grief,

Of conflict, and of sin,
May tell how large the harvest sheaf
His patient love shall win. Amen.
