1.From church to church the bells' glad tidings run:
A Virgin hath conceiv'd, and borne a Son
2.And Angel hosts, the midnight of His Birth,
Sang "Glory be to God, and peace on earth,"
3."Now go we forth, and see this wondrous thing,"

4.Then Herod sought the Royal Son to slay,
Who rather should have come to kneel and pray
5.The Star went leading on from East to West:
The Wise men followed, till they saw it rest
6.Their frankincense, and myrrh, and gold they bring,
To hail the God, the Mortal, and the King
7.With threefold gifts the Treefold God three praise,
Who thus vouchsaf'd the fons of man to raise,
