Subject: Lyr Add: QUEM PASTORES
'QUEM PASTORES' from a ms. of Hoenfurth, Germany c. 1410

He whom joyous shepherds praised,
Whenthe angel's song was raised,
Bidding them be not amazed,
Heaven's all-glorious King is born.

He whom sages westward faring,
Myrrh and gold and incense bearing,
Worshipped, bowing low before him,
Reigns as King this happy morn.

Now rejoice with Jesus' mother,
Praise her new-born son, our brother,
Angels vie with one another,
Praising him beyond the sky.

Sing to Christ, the King who reigneth,
Yet of Mary manhood gaineth,
Born our God; let us adore him:
Glory be to God on high.
