Bring the candle, bring the lyre,
Summer flower, winter fire,
Shepherd, Wise Men, Seraphim,
Come, all come to honor Him.
See how goodly is the night
Fired by chalcedonic light.
Let the birds and beasts assemble,
Feel, the Earth is all atremble.
His gown Mechlin
And the jasper for His crown,
Bring tame and wild,
Come, oh come, and see the Child.
