Adam of St. Victor, c. 1150, tr. by Robert Campbell, 1850
Christians, come, in sweetest measures|
Sing of those who spread the treasures
In the holy Gospels shrined;
Blessed tidings of salvation,
Peace on earth their proclamation,
Love from God to lost mankind.
2. See the rivers four that gladden
3. Here our souls, by Jesus sated,|
More and more shall be translated
Earth's temptations far above;
Freed from sin's abhorred dominion,
Soaring on angelic pinion,
They shall reach the Source of love.
4. Then shall thanks and praise ascending
