It was the calm and silent night! Seven hundred years and fifty-threeHad Rome been growing up to might, And now was queen of land and sea.No sound was heard of clashing wars, Peace brooded o’er the hushed domain;Apollo, Pallas, Jove, and Mars Held undisturbed their ancient reign In the solemn midnight,Centuries ago.
Christmas Hymn (1833), reported in Bartlett's Familiar Quotations, 10th ed. (1919).
