Lyr. Add: BEHOLD THE MORNING STAR
English, traditional

1
Behold, behold the morning star.
How bright its glories shine
See how the heavens wide opening are,
opening are,
Hark music how divine!
Hark music how divine.
2
Arise, ye mortals, hear
Angelic voices sing:
And shout with that celestial choir
That praises of our King.
3
He comes to bless mankind
With universal grace:
He comes to heal the sinners' mind,
To save a ruined race.
4
Then shout with grateful song,
And loud, ye Angels sing:
Give Christ the glory, King of Kings,
Who doth salvation bring!

W. A. Pickard-Cambridge, 1926, A Collection of Dorset Carols, Ridley, London.

(Brought to mind by the unrelated carol "Behold That Star," Talley.)
