THE NATIVITY. SULLEN age on age bas gone,
Harps and voices angel-ion'd, Since from Heaven the Mighty One
Hover'd v'er it in that cloud. Stoop'd to earth to live and uie,
With their faces earthward bow'd. Veiling all his Majestv;
The Shepherds heard the glorious by mr, Not upon the thunders burne,
Till the serapb pomp was dim, Not upon the wings of morn:
“ Peace to man, and praise to God,". O'er the shepherd-camp at night
Ecboing up the starry road, Came a lone and lovely light,
Through the million words around, Silvering with its moon-like beam
Like a new Creation's sound, The village roots of Bethlehem :
Till it reach'd the gates of Heaven: Shapes, with seraph beauty zon'd,
Man was in that hour forgiven!
CHRISTMAS, BY CHARLES WESLEY. Rejoice in Jesu's birth!
His name, his nature, soars To us a Son is given,
Beyond the creature's ken : To us a child is born on earth,
Yet wbom the angelic host adores, Who made both earth and heaven!
He pleads the cause of men! His shoulder props the sky,
Our counsellor we praise, This universe sustains !
Our Advocate above, The God Supreme, the Lord most high,
Who daily in his Church displays The king Messiah reigns !
His miracles of love.
