BETHLEHEM GATE


Behold the Prince of Peace! around
 His cradle angry tempests rage;
 He needs must go on pilgrimage,
An exile, homeless and discrowned.


And yet, His Rank to designate,
 The unquenched Star of Bethlehem
 Shines forth, a radiant diadem;
While Angels on His footsteps wait.


E’en now the Father’s Face they see,
 A triumph-song e’en now they sing,
 And, wondering and worshipping,
Attend His Pilgrim-Family.
