68                       FABER'S HYMNS.
Oh glory be to God on high for these Arabian kings, These miracles of royal faith, with eastern offerings: For Gaspar and for Melchior and Balthazzar, who
from far Found Mary out and Jesus by the shining of a Star !
THE PURIFICATION.
Joy! Joy! the Mother comes, And in her arms she brings
The Light of all the world,
The Christ, the King of Kings;
And in her heart the while All silently she sings.
Saint Joseph follows near, In rapture lost and love,
While angels round about In glowing circles move,
And o'er the Mother broods The Everlasting Dove!
There in the temple court
Old Simeon's heart beats high,
And Anna feeds her soul With food of prophecy;
But, see ! the shadows pass,
The world's true Light draws nigh.
