Look up, sweet babe

Lennox Berkeley

Look up, sweet Babe, look up and see!
For love of thee,
Though far from home,
The East is come
To seek herself in thy sweet eyes.

To thee thou day of night! thou East of West!
Lo, we at last have found the way
To thee, the world’s great universal East,
The general and indifferent day.

Richard Crashaw, from A Hymn for the Epiphany, 1646
