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.

Refrain:
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]
