Representative Text

1 In the east a wondrous star appeared
Long years ago;
And with hope the waiting wise men cheered,
They their promised king should know!

Refrain:
A brighter than Bethlehem’s great star have we
Along our way;
Christ, the Morning Star, our guide will be
To endless day!

2 How the wise rejoiced to see the star
Above the stall;
And they, with their treasures from afar,
Worshipped Christ, the Lord of all! [Refrain]

3 Star divine! It hailed the newborn Christ,
Our Savior, King!
On the cross His blood for all sufficed,
Evermore His praises sing! [Refrain]
