1 Bethlehem star, beautiful star,
Shining with guiding ray,
Shedding a light, heavenly light,
Pointing to Christ the way;
Angels so bright, winging their flight
Over the silent hill.
Carol a song into the morn,
"Peace unto earth, good will."
Glowing, glowing star of radiant beauty,
Streaming, beaming o'er the newborn King;
Angels sang by night, tidings of peace
Telling unto earth; Joyful the news they bring.
2 Over the earth, slumbering deep,
Angels are hov'ring near,
Telling of him coming to reign,
Blessed are they who hear.
Nations, arise! Honor your King!
Share in the joys today!
Jesus, the mild, comes as a child,
Showing the heav'nly way. [Chorus]
3 Arches of heav'n streaming with light,
Honor the King who came;
Glories on high, filling the sky,
Praise the Redeemer's name.
Wonderful love, wonderful love,
Sent from the throne on high,
Gave to the earth peace and good will,
Bringing salvation nigh. [Chorus]
