"David Ashley White's Behold, he came will also find a place; the text is not my cup of tea ('Light of Noel lights, glow with radiance bright'), but its setting is effective." AAM Journal, October 1994

Out of blackest night, shone a brilliant light.
When Herod and a Caesar reigned, was born a child of right.
Behold, he came! The word was flesh.
Make it dwell in us afresh.
Out of law's decree, came a spirit free;
proclaiming every timeless truth, through prophet's urgent plea. Refrain
Light of Noel lights, glow with radiance bright.
Resplendent as a priceless gem, reflect from us tonight. Refrain
