"Welsh Carol" lyrics

Welsh Carol

Awake were they only
Those shepherds so lonely
On guard in that silence profound
When color had faded
When nighttime had shaded
Their senses from sight and from sound

Lo, then broke a wonder
Then drifted asunder
The veils from the splendor of God
When light from the holy
Came down to the lowly
And heaven to the earth that they trod

Lo, then broke a wonder
Then drifted asunder
The veils from the splendor of God
When light from the holy
Came down to the lowly
And heaven to the earth that they trod

May light now enfold us
Oh, Lord, for behold us
Like shepherds from tumult withdrawn
Nor hearing, nor seeing
All other care fleeing
We wait the ineffable dawn

Oh, Spirit all-knowing
Thou source overflowing
Oh, move in the darkness around
That sight may be in us
True hearing to win us
Glad tidings where Christ may be found

Oh, Spirit all-knowing
Thou source overflowing
Oh, move in the darkness around
That sight may be in us
True hearing to win us
Glad tidings where Christ may be found
