Excerpt from The Messenger, Vol. 3: Christmas, A. D. 1916
Wake, O earth! Wake everything! Wake! And hear the joy I bring; Wake and joy! For all this night Heaven and every twinkling light, All amazing, Still stand gazing; Angels, Powers, and all that be, Wake and joy this Sun to see.
Hail! 0 Sun! 0' blessed Light! Sent into this world by night; Let Thy Rays and heavenly Powers Shine in these dark souls of ours, For most duly Thou [art truly God and man, we do confess: Hail! 0 Sun of Righteousness. - William Austin, 1630.
