Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem,

Saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him.

17 I shall see him, but not now: I shall behold him, but not nigh: there shall come a Star out of Jacob, and a Sceptre shall rise out of Israel, and shall smite the corners of Moab, and destroy all the children of Sheth.

Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter’s vessel.

“When Jesus, Our Lord” from Christus, Op. 97 (1846-47), composed by Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy (1809-47)
