Coelius Sedulius, c.450, tr. by John M. Neale, 1852
The star proclaims the King is here;|
But, Herod, why this senseless fear?
He takes no realms of earth away
Who gives the realms of heavenly day.
2. The wiser Magi see from far
3. Within the Jordan's crystal flood|
In meekness stands the Lamb of God
And, sinless, sanctifies the wave,
Mankind from sin to cleanse and save.
4. At Cana first His power is shown;
5. All glory, Jesus, be to Thee|
For this Thy glad epiphany;
Whom with the Father we adore
And Holy Ghost forevermore.
