Deliver us through Thy descent

  Deliver us through Thy descent 
Into the Virgin, whose womb was a place 
  Of middle kind ; and Thou being sent 
To ungracious us, stay’dst at her full of grace ; 
              And through Thy poor birth, where first Thou 
              Glorified’st poverty ; 
And yet soon after riches didst allow, 
By accepting kings’ gifts in th’ Epiphany ; 
Deliver us, and make us to both ways free.
