A new Christmas ode, as sung at the Music Hall, Liverpool.
Lyrics: Anon, probably the composer

Whose voice did first inspire the eastern lay,
Amid the starry grandeur of the night?
When choral angels hailed the rising day
That saw a Saviour born, the world's great light,
Whose voice? It was religion's voice; her theme divine
To shepherds, then to bright Cecilia giv'n,
In flowing chords, with rapture to refine
The heart of man and raise the soul to heav'n.
