B-_.BE OF BETHLEHEM.
[Written for the Globe.]
Swing, ring, swing
.Ye sweet pulsating bells,
Eincr. swing, ring
Ye rich-resounding shells.
'Till all manukind shell hear again
Of 'Peace on earth, good will to men:'
A carol burst of heaven's refrain.
That rolled that night o'er Judean plain,
And roused the shepherds from their dreams;
In torrents of celestial beams
Commingling with refulgent fires.
The brilliant rants, angelic choirs,
" And serajibim ** ■*;- '" .* ,
With golden harps and lyres
; Exultantly proclaimed to them
The wondrous Babe of Bethlehem,
While heavenly hosts adoringly
In reverence hymned the lullaby,
And at the shrine
Bowed down to holy infancy.'.*. _
Aud thus he came, because be would
Exalt and honor babyhood.
Since Advent night
Encircles hallowed Christmas time
With softened sympathies sublime.
A priceless gift ! the brightest cem !
All hail the Babe of Bethlehem !

making pleasanter the Christmas of the
poor. Society during the coming week
will devote itself largely to the festiv
