What is godolphin?

Famous quotes containing the word godolphin:

    Lord, when the wise men came from far,
    Led to thy cradle by a star,
    Then did the shepherds too rejoice,
    Instructed by thy angel’s voice.
    Blest were the wise men in their skill,
    And shepherds in their harmless will.
