1 Jesus is the star of guidance
Shining bright upon our way,
Leading ever thro’ the darkness
Up to realms of endless day.
Hail, O star that shines in splendor
Thro’ the darkness of the night!
Shining o’er the fields of error,
Doubt and gloom will take their flight.

Refrain:
Beautiful star, beautiful star,
Thy radiance o’er us is stealing;
Beautiful star, beautiful star,
To mortals a glory revealing.

2 When of old the wise men journeyed
Where the little Christ child lay,
Up in heaven a star so wondrous
Shone to guide them on their way;
And they saw the star of glory,
Knew at once this was the sign
That to them was born a Saviour,
Him of royal David’s line. [Refrain]

3 Bearing gifts of love they follow
Till they find the Lord of all
Cradled lowly in a manger,
And before His feet they fall.
Then they worship and adore Him,
Jesus Christ the Infant King;
Costly gifts of gold and incense
To His humble throne they bring. [Refrain]
