WHO SEEKS THE KING, by            
First Line: No darkness fell in all the world that night
Last Line: Who seeks the king shall need no light but this.


No darkness fell in all the world that night;
The soft light shone as though it were midday;
While shepherds heard the chimes of heaven play,
The angels ushered in the Prince of Light.
A star's unwavering light held deep amaze;
Lo, all the wistful air and earth and sky
Held pause to hear a Baby's destined cry,
And mystic wisemen rode with steadfast gaze.

Not they alone, but all have seen the star,
Wherever weary ones of earth have trod,
Whenever heavenly longing cried to God,
Wherever souls are groping from afar.
His love illumines life and death's abyss --
Who seeks the King shall need no light but this.
