The Son of God they straightway sought,
That he might then be slain, That his destruction might be wrought,
As Herod did ordain.
O cruel, &c. But soon from Heaven was warning given
That Mary should not stay, But with her child at once exil'd
To Egypt take her way.
O cruel, &c. Let us give praise to God therefore
With modest mirth and glee, And still this day adore, wherein
Our Saviour was set free.
O cruel, &c.
FOR SAINT STEPHEN'S DAY.
Saint Stephen was an holy man,
Endued with heavenly might, And many wonders he did work
Before the people's sight. And by the blessed Spirit of God,
Which did his heart inflame, He spared not in every place
To preach Christ Jesus' name.
