10.3

2 Cold on His cradle the dewdrops are shining;

Low lies His head with the beasts of the stall:
Angels adore Him in slumber reclining,

Maker and Monarch and Saviour of all.

3 Say, shall we yield Him, in costly devotion,

Odors of Edom and offerings Divine,
Gems of the mountain and pearls of the ocean,

Myrrh from the forest, or gold from the mine?

4 Vainly we offer each ample oblation;

Vainly with gifts would His favor secure:
Richer by far is the heart's adoration;

Dearer to God are the prayers of the poor.

5 Brightest and best of the sons of the morning,

Dawn on our darkness, and lend us thine aid;
Star of the east, the horizon adorning,
Guide where our infant Redeemer is laid.

Bishop Reginald Heber, 1811

(See also Sr. ALBAN, No. 239) 2 Thou who in a manger

3 Gather in the outcasts,
Once hast lowly lain,

All who've gone astray,
Who dost now in glory

Throw Thy radiance o'er them,
O'er all kingdoms reign,

Guide them on their way:
Gather in the heathen,

Those who never knew Thee,
Who in lands afar

Those who've wandered far,
Ne'er have seen the brightness Guide them by the brightness
Of Thy guiding star.

Of Thy guiding star.
Light of life, etc.

Light of life, etc.

4 Onward through the darkness

Of the lonely night,
Shining still before them

With Thy kindly light,
Guide them, Jew and Gentile,

Homeward from afar,
Young and old together,
By Thy guiding star.
Light of life, etc.

5 Until every nation,

Whether bond or free,
'Neath Thy starlit banner,

Jesus, follows Thee
O'er the distant mountains

To that heavenly home,
Where nor sin nor sorrow
Evermore shall come.
Light of life, etc.

Rev. Godfrey Thring, 1873

(See also SOLITUDE, No. 73)

2 Sunbeams scorching all the day;

Chilly dewdrops nightly shed; Prowling beasts about Thy way;

Stones Thy pillow; earth Thy bed.

4 And if Satan, vexing sore,

Flesh or spirit should assail, Thou, his Vanquisher before,

Grant we may not faint nor fail.

3 Shall not we Thy sorrow share, 5 So shall we have peace Divine; And from earthly joys abstain,

Holier gladness ours shall be; Fasting with unceasing prayer,

Round us too shall angels shine, Glad with Thee to suffer pain?

Such as ministered to Thee.
Rev. George H. Smyttan, 1856: alt. by Rev. Francis Pott, 1861

The following II ymns are also suitable : 197 My dear Redeemer and my Lord. 447 Saviour, when in dust to Thee.
