Break Forth, O Beauteous Heavenly Light

words by Johann Rist, 1641
translated from German to English by John Troutbeck, c1885

 

Break forth, O beauteous heavenly light,
And usher in the morning;
O shepherds, shrink not with afright,
But hear the angel's warning.
This Child, now weak in infancy,
Our confidence and joy shall be,
The power of Satan breaking,
Our peace eternal making.
