26. Break Forth, O Beauteous Heavenly Light

Break forth, O beauteous heavenly light,
And usher in the morning;
You shepherds, shudder not with fright,
But hear the angel's warning.
This Child, now weak in infancy,
Our confidence and joy shall be;
The power of Satan breaking,
Our peace eternal making.
