|Glad tidings of great
joy are come to you,
Eternal in their deep and lasting pleasure.
Nor can we not give adoration due,
Embracing so embraceable a treasure.
Rejoice, then, in the child of your child,
A gift come from a gift come from your love.
The sun once more upon our lives has smiled,
Inviting us to move as we are moved.
Our faith in faith is by our faith redeemed,
Nor will the time be different than we dreamed,
So passing sweet will this new angel prove.
