"O God, take me in spirit to the watchful shepherds,
and enlarge my mind;
let me hear good tidings of great joy,
and hearing, believe, rejoice, praise, adore,
place me with ox, ass, camel, goat,
to look upon my Redeemer's face,
let me with Simeon clasp the new-born child
to my heart,
exulting that he is mine and I am his.
that heaven can give no more."
