CHRIST'S NATIVITY

       Where so clean as
       Thy manger was!
But I am all filth, and obscene;
Yet, if thou wilt, thou canst make clean.

Sweet Jesu! will then. Let no more
This leper haunt and soil thy door!
       Cure him, ease him,
       O release him!
And let once more, by mystic birth,
The Lord of life be born in earth.
