Amid the silence


Polish carol (Christmas and New Year Songs 1922) translated by Angela Morgan.


Amid the silence of the solemn night,
Sound the glad summons ''Lo the King of Light!
Rouse, O shepherds, haste with singing
Christ has come, salvation bringing,
    Born at Bethlehem.

Gladly the herdsmen sought the holy Son,
found in a manger Christ the sinless one,
Worshipped him with exultation,
God has brought us full salvation!
   Him we shall adore!

Lord, we have hailed thee, many thousand years.
Now through our darkness lo, thy star appears.
King and prophets long have named thee,
Priests and martyrs all proclaimed thee,
    Saviour of mankind.
