Luke 2:15-20
So it was, when the angels had gone away from them into heaven, that the shepherds said to one another, “Let us now go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has come to pass, which the Lord has made known to us.” And they came with haste and found Mary and Joseph, and the Babe lying in a manger. Now when they had seen Him, they made widely known the saying which was told them concerning this Child. And all those who heard it marveled at those things which were told them by the shepherds. But Mary kept all these things and pondered them in her heart. Then the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things that they had heard and seen, as it was told them.

13. Ah, dearest Jesus, holy Child, 
Make Thee a bed, soft, undefiled, 
Within my heart, that it may be 
A quiet chamber kept for Thee. 

14. My heart for very joy doth leap, 
My lips no more can silence keep; 
I, too, must sing with joyful tongue 
That sweetest ancient cradle-song: 

15. Glory to God in highest heaven, 
Who unto us His Son hath given! 
While angels sing with pious mirth 
A glad new year to all the earth.
