  • Like silver lamps in a distant shrine,
    The stars are sparkling bright;
    The bells of the city of God ring out,
    For the Son of Mary is born tonight.
    The gloom is past,
    And the morn at last
    Is coming with orient light.

    The stars of heaven still shine as at first
    They gleamed on this wonderful night;
    The bells of the city of God peal out,
    And the angels' song still rings in the height,
    And love still turns
    Where the Godhead burns,
    Hid in flesh from fleshly sight.

    Faith sees no longer the stable floor,
    The pavement of sapphire is there,
    The clear light of heaven streams out to the world,
    And the angels of God are crowding the air,
    And heaven and earth,
    Through the spotless birth,
    Are at peace on this night so fair.

                                  –  W. C. Dix (1867)
