Text heard on Sample:
A stable lamp is lighted whose glow shall wake the sky;
The stars shall bed their voices and every stone shall cry.
And every stone shall cry, and straw like gold will shine;
A barn shall harbour haeven and an oxen stall become a shrine.

This child through David's city shall ride in triumph by.
The palm shall strew its branches, and every stone shall cry.
And every stone shall cry, though heavy, dull and dumb,
And lie within the roadway to pave His kingdom come.

Yet He shall be forsaken and yielded up to die.
The sky shall groan and darken and every stone shall cry.
And every stone shall cry, for stony hearts of men;
God's blood upon the spearhead, God's love refused again.

Richard Wilbur
