✙ Jeremiah 10:12
on Mary’s lap is sleeping—
whom angels greet with anthems sweet,
while shepherds watch are keeping?
This, this is Christ the King,
whom shepherds guard and angels sing;
haste, haste, to bring him laud,
the Babe, the Son of Mary.
Why lies he in such mean estate,
where ox and ass are feeding?
Good Christians, fear, for sinners here
