Representative Text

1 A star shone in the heavens
On Christmas morn,
Above the place where Jesus,
The Lord, was born.

O holy, holy Christmas,
O blessèd, blessèd Christmas,
O joyful, joyful Christmas,
When Christ was born.

2 The wise men saw the brightness,
And came from far;
They found the way to Jesus,
Led by the star. [Refrain]

3 Oh, may this star of beauty
Still point the way,
To lead us all to Jesus,
This Christmas day. [Refrain]
