  • Non nobis, Domine!
    Not unto us, O Lord,
    The praise and glory be
    Of any deed or word.
    For in Thy judgment lies
    To crown or bring to nought
    All knowledge and device
    That man has reached or wrought.
    And we confess our blame,
    How all too high we hold
    That noise which men call fame,
    That dross which men call gold.
    For these we undergo
    Our hot and godless days,
    But in our souls we know
    Not unto us the praise.
    O Power, by whom we live,
    Creator, Judge, and Friend,
    Upholdingly forgive,
    Nor leave us at the end.
    But grant us yet to see
    In all our piteous ways,
    Non nobis, Domine,
    Not unto us the praise.
    Text by Rudyard Kipling (1865-1936)

    Loving father, loving mother,
    Shelter Thee with tender care! 
    Blessed Jesus, we implore Thee
    With humble love and holy fear,
    In the land that lies before Thee,
    Forget not us who linger here!
    May the shepherd’s lowly calling,
    Ever to Thy heart be dear! 
    Blest are ye beyond all measure,
    Thou happy father, mother mild!
    Guard ye well your Heav’nly Treasure,
    The Prince of Peace, the Holy Child!
    God go with you, God protect you,
    Guide you safely through the wild!

    Incense to the Priest they bring,
    Myrrh, for time of burying
    Cum Virgine Maria.
    On the feast-day of His birth,
    Set on thrones above the earth,
    Angels chant in Holy mirth
    Cum Virgine Maria.
    Thus, to bless the One in Three,
    Let this present company
    Raise the voice of melody
    Cum Virgine Maria.
    Text: 15th Century Latin

As I walked in Bethlehem
About the break of day,
Underneath a rosy sky
The little houses lay,
And much I marvelled that the town,
Veiled in morning mist
Should seem as walled in chrysophase
And roofed with amethyst.

As I walked in Bethlehem
(And there I walked alone),
Such gladness filled my beating heart
As I had never known
Broader seemed the narrow streets
As brighter grew the day
I heard the bells of heav’n ring out
From not so far away

As I walked in Bethlehem
Before the sun was high,
A woman’s crooning voice I heard,
I heard a baby’s cry.
And glory, glory! sang my soul
The while I thought and trod
Between the lifted gates of pearl,
The golden streets of God.

-Text by Audrey Alexandra Brown

Let all mortal flesh keep silence, and with fear and trembling stand;
Ponder nothing earthly minded, for with blessing in his hand,
Christ our Lord to earth descendeth our full homage to demand.

King of Kings, yet born of Mary, as of old on earth He stood,
Lord of Lords, in human vesture in the Body and the Blood
He will give to all the faithful His own Self for heavenly food.

Rank on rank the host of heaven spreads its vanguard on the way
As the light descendeth from the realms of endless day
That the pow’rs of hell may vanish as the darkness clears away.

At His feet the six-winged seraph; Cherubim with sleepless eye,
Veil their faces to the Presence, as with ceaseless voice they cry,
Alleluya, Alleluya, Alleluya Lord most High. Amen.

-Words translated from the Greek by G. Moultrie

Within my heart, and there recline,
And keep that chamber ever Thine.
