Musical offering for Epiphany

Out of the orient crystal skies
A blazing star did shine,
Showing the place where poorly lies
A blessed babe divine.

This shining star three kings did guide
Even from the farthest east,
To Bethlehem where it betide
This blessed babe did rest.

He was born of a maid of royal blood
Who Mary was called by name,
A sacred rose which once did bud
By grace of heavenly flame.

And for the joy of his great birth
A thousand angels sing:
“Glory and peace unto the earth
Where born is this heavenly king!”
Alleluia! Alleluia!
And for the joy of His great birth
A thousand angels sing.
Alleluia! Alleluia!
A thousand angels sing:
“Glory and peace unto the earth
Where born is this heavenly king!
Sing of the joy of his great birth,
Glory and peace unto the earth!”

Out of the orient crystal skies
A blazing star did shine,
Showing the place where poorly lies
A blessed babe divine.
Alleluia! Alleluia!
