The King of all Glory to the world being
brought,                                    [wrought;
Small store of fine linen to wrap him was
When Mary had swaddled her young Son so
Within an ox manger she laid him to sleep.
Rejoice, &c.

Rejoice, &c.
Then presently after, the Shepherds did spy A number of Angels appear in the sky, Who joyfully talked, and sweetly did sing, To God be all Glory, our Heavenly King.
Rejoice, &c.
Three certain Wise Princes, they thought it
most meet To lay their rich off'rings at our Saviour's feet; Then the Shepherds consent, and to Bethlehem
did go, And when they came thither, they found it
was so.                                   Rejoice, &c.
THE FIRST NOWELL. A Carol for the morning of Christmas Day; the tune from Mr. Sandys' Collection.
