AUGUSTUS CiESAR HAVING BROUGHT.
Augustus Caesar having brought
The world to quiet peace, That all the noise of bloody wars
In every land did cease ; Just Joseph, with his Mary mild,
To Bethlehem did come, Which blessed place appointed was To ease her burden d womb.
O sing we all, with heart and voice,
Let Christian love increase, For unto us this day is born The only Prince of Peace.
Then, all the town being full of guests,
Such was their helpless case, That not a bed for them was left,
Nor any lodging place ; But in a poor and simple inn,
Even an ox's stall Appointed was to entertain
The Saviour of us all.
O sing, &c. No mantle, nor no rich attire,
No swaddling bands, nor linen rare, No costly robes, nor golden treasure,
Could Jesus Christ our Lord have there.
