Then God he knew her faith was such
For to believe aright; The Angel then by God's own power
Departed from her sight.
Let men, &c. Then Caesar made a firm decree
That certainly should stand, That all the world should taxed be
By power of his command : Mary then being great with child
When Caesar made this call, For in her womb was then conceiv'd
The Saviour of us all.
Let men, &c. Thus Mary and her husband kind
Together did remain, And went to Bethlehem to be tax'd,
As Scripture doth make plain. And so it was, they being there,
Her time being fully come, That in a stable she brought forth
Her first begotten Son.
Let men, &c. These tidings to the Shepherds came,
Watching their flocks by night, For God he sent his Angel down,
Which did them sore affright.
