Hymn/Song Information

Cold on his cradle the dewdrops are




Cold on His cradle
the dew-drops are shining;
Low lies His head
with the beasts of the stall;
Angels adore Him,
in slumber reclining,
Maker and monarch,
and Saviour of all.


Say, shall we yield Him,
in costly devotion,
Odours of Edom,
and offerings divine;
Gems of the mountain,
and pearls of ocean,
Myrrh from forest,
or gold from the mine?


Vainly we offer
each ample oblation;
Vainly with gifts
would His favour secure;
Richer by far is
the heart's adoration;
Dearer to God are
the prayers of the poor.


Brightest and best
of the sons of the morning,
Dawn on our darkness,
and lend us thine aid;
Star of the east,
the horizon adorning,
Guide where our
infant Redeemer is laid.
