Jesus Refulsit Omnium
Five of the nine stanzas of one of the earliest Christmastide Christian hymns. St. Hilary's hymn, "Jesus Refulsit Omnium," was used in the medieval English church as the Office Hymn for Mattins during the Octave of Epiphany. The Sunday in the Octave of Epiphany (The First Sunday after the Epiphany in the 1979 BCP) is the Feast of the Baptism of Jesus.
