A Babe Is Born

A BABE IS BORN
William Mathias

A babe is born all of a may,
To bring salvation unto us.
To him we sing both night and day.
Veni Creator Spiritus.
  [Come, Creator Spirit]

At Bethlehem, that blessed place,
The child of bliss now born he was;
And him to serve God give us grace,
O lux beata Trinitas.  [O Trinity of blessed light]

There came three kings out of the East,
To worship the King that is so free,
With gold and myrrh and frankincense,
A solis ortus cardine.  [from the rising of the sun]

The angels came down with one cry,
A fair song that night sung they
In worship of that child:
Gloria tibi Domine.  [Glory to thee, O Lord]
Noel!

– 15th century
