ODE VI




As Jonah, issuing from
his three daysí tomb,
At length was cast,
uninjured, on the earth;
So, from the virginís
unpolluted womb
Thíincarnate Word,
That dwelt there, had His birth:
For He, Who knew
no taint of mortal stain,
Willed that His mother
spotless should remain.


Christ comes, incarnate God,
amongst us now,
Begotten of the Father ere the day:
And He, to Whom
the sinless legions bow,
Lies cradled, ímidst
unconscious beasts on hay:
And, by His homely
swaddling-bands girt in,
Looses the many fetters of our sin.


Now the new Child of Adamís
race draws nigh,
To us, the faithful, givín: This,
this is He
That shall the Father of eternity,
The Angel of the Mighty Counsel, be:
This the eternal God,
by Whose strong hands
The fabric of the world
supported stands.
