The Child of Glory, a Gaelic Prayer

“An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord.” Luke 2: 9-11
 
The Child of Glory
The Child of Glory, 
The Child of Mary, 
Born in the stable, 
The King of all, 
 
Who came to the wilderness
And in our stead suffered; 
Happy they are counted
Who to Him are near. 
 
When He Himself saw
That we were in travail, 
Heaven opened graciously
Over our heads; 
We beheld Christ, 
The Spirit of truth, 
The same drew us in 
‘Neath the shield of His crown. 
 
Strengthen our hope, 
Enliven our joyance, 
Keep us valiant, 
Faithful and near; 
 
O light of our lantern, 
Along with the virgins, 
Singing in glory
The anthem new.
