O then spoke the Angel Gabriel, Upon one good Saint Stephen,
Altho' you 're but a maiden's child, You are the King of Heaven.
THE CARNAL AND THE CRANE.
As I pass'd by a river side,
And there as I did reign, In argument I chanced to hear
A Carnal and a Crane.
The Carnal said unto the Crane, If all the world should turn,
Before we had the Father, But now we have the Son !
From whence does the Son come ?
From where and from what place ? He said, In a manger,
Between an ox and ass!
I pray thee, said the Carnal,
Tell me before thou go, Was not the Mother of Jesus
Conceiv'd by the Holy Ghost ?
