197. Beautiful Star

1 Beautiful star of olden time,
Blessed your mission in the earth,
Shedding your rays afar and wide,
Telling of the Messiah’s birth.

Beautiful star of Bethlehem,
Shining o’er the plains by night,
Leading the way from lands afar
Unto Christ the blessed light.

2 Beautiful star of olden time,
Carry the news of peace, good will,
Promises written in the word,
Jesus is coming to fulfill. [Refrain]

3 Beautiful star of olden time,
O may your light beam out again,
Unto the utmost parts of earth,
Speaking the love of Christ to men. [Refrain]
