When Thou O Lord in flesh wert drest The

When Thou, O Lord, in flesh wert drest,
The world Thou mad'st to free,
The Inn, where weary travellers rest,
Had not a room for Thee.

The Holy Babe in manger rude
Was all His birth-night laid ;
Pondering God's words, in thoughtful mood,
Nigh watched the Mother Maid.

But oh ! that wondrous midnight round
What light, what glories throng,
When man his infant Saviour found,
And heard the angels' song !

Sweet anthem ! caught from hosts on high,
Dwell thou our hearts within ;
Blest bridal of the earth and sky,
Long separate through sin.

Though all unmeet that gladsome hymn
For harps by sin unstrung,
That psalm, by white-robed seraphim
In God's own presence sung,

Yet sometimes, when our spirit tires,
By toil and darkness worn,
Lord ! make us hear seraphic choirs,
And give a glimpse of morn:

If love wax cold, and strife increase,
Chant in our hearts again,
" Glory to God on high, and peace
" On earth, good will to men ! "
