A Ballad of Wise Men

Author: George Baird Meter: 8.6.8.6.8.6 Appears in 1 hymnal First Line: When that our gentle Lord was born Lyrics: 1. When that our gentle Lord was born, And cradled in the hay, There rode three wise men from the east— Three rich wise men were they— All in the starry night they came Their homage gifts to pay. 2. They got them down from camel-back, The cattle shed before, And in the darkness vainly sought A great latch on the door; Ho, this is strange, quoth Balthazar, Aye, strange, quoth Melchior. 3. Quoth Gaspar, I can find no hasp, Well hidden is the lock; The door, quoth Melchior, is stout And fast, our skill to mock; Quoth Balthazar, The little King Might wake, we dare not knock. 4. The three wise men they sat them down To wait for morning dawn, The cunning wards of that old door They thought and marveled on; Quoth they, No gate in all the East Hath bar-bolts tighter drawn. 5. Anon there came a little lad With lambskins for the King, He had no key, he raised no latch, He touched no hidden spring, But gently pushed the silent door And open it gan swing. 6. A miracle! a miracle! Cried out the wise men three; A little child hath solved the locks That could not opened be. In wonder spake the shepherd lad, It hath no locks, quoth he.

A band of herdsmen tarried late

Meter: 8.8.8.8.8.8 Appears in 2 hymnals Lyrics: A band of herdsmen tarried late, Through hours of night disconsolate; Around, the snow lay glistening white, And stars o'erhead were shining bright; O favoured shepherds, there shall rise A brighter star in yonder skies. Whence comes this glory, brighter far Than light that shines from midnight star? An angel from the Lord appears, And lo! their minds are filled with fears; O favoured shepherds, wherefore fear? The messenger of God is here. "O band of herdsmen, list! I bring Glad tidings of a promised King; Go, in a manger ye shall find The new-born Saviour of mankind"; O favoured shepherds, such surprise! To see the Christ in mean disguise. 71 Then stood the herdsmen all amaze, For heaven with glory was ablaze; And choirs of angels, clad in white, Awoke with song the silent night: O favoured shepherds, ye are blest, To hear that heavenly song exprest. "To God be glory," thus they sang, While earth and heaven with music rang; "And peace abounding henceforth dwell With those on earth who please Me well"; O favoured shepherds, night is past, And morn, bright morn, is come at last. O band of herdsmen, long ago, That song was sung on earth below; Now myriad hosts uplift the strains That first awoke on Bethlehem's plains: O favoured shepherds, round the throne, The angel's song is now your own.
