From God's majestic throne,
The mighty Word leaped down
As silence filled the night.
To Mary's care was given
The Father's Son from heaven:
Our Lord, our life, our light.

'While gentle silence enveloped all things,
And night in its swift course was now half gone,
Thy all-powerful word leaped from heaven,
From the royal throne Wisdom of Solomon 18.14, 15)
