IDIOMELON FOR CHRISTMAS.881st ed. only, p. 13.


Anatolius, ~458

In Bethlehem is He born,

Maker of all things, everlasting GOD!

He opens Eden’s gate,

Monarch of Ages! Thence the fiery sword

Gives glorious passage; thence

That severing mid-wall overthrown, the Powers

Of earth and Heav’n are one:

Angels and men renew their ancient league,

The pure rejoin the pure

In happy union! Now the Virgin-womb,

Like some cherubic throne,

Containeth Him, the Uncontainable:

Bears Him, Who while they bear

The Seraphs tremble: bears Him, as He comes

To shower upon the world

The fulness of His everlasting love.
