Marvelous in the skies above
Amidst the darkness of the night,
Resplendent with fire of His love,
Inspired by His heavenly light,
Angels announce the newborn King

Greatly trembling, the shepherds fear
As the heavens above are filled
By the angels whose song they hear
Before being calmed by such goodwill
Yet so heard in the words that ring

Dare we too join in the praise
Offered by the angels to Christ
As the Child in the manger lays
(Not scorning the Pearl of great price),
Ent'ring the song which they do sing

[Very rarely do I write poetry since, as you can see, I am not a poet.]
