        The scene around me disappears,
        And, borne to ancient regions,
        While Time recalls the flight of years,
        I see angelic legions
        Descending in an orb of light,
        Amidst the dark and silent night;
        I hear celestial voices.


        “Tidings, glad tidings from above
        To every age and nation;
        Tidings, glad tidings,—God is love,
        To man he sends salvation:
        His Son beloved, his only Son,
        The work of mercy hath begun;
        Give to his name the glory.”


        Through David’s city I am led;
        Here all around are sleeping;
        A light directs to yon poor shed,
        There lonely watch is keeping:
        I enter;—ah! what glories shine!
        Is this Immanuel’s earthly shrine?
        Messiah’s infant temple?


        It is, it is; and I adore
        This Stranger meek and lowly,
        As saints and seraphs bow before
        The throne of God thrice holy:
        Faith through the veil of flesh can see
        The face of thy divinity,
        My Lord, my God, my Saviour!
