Representative Text

1 Lo! the shepherds, abiding in the fields by night,
Many years ago,
Heard the voices of angels, saw a wondrous light,
Many years ago;
The wise men of old saw the guiding star,
Whose beams from the heavenly gates ajar
Did lead to the Christ Child in Bethlehem afar,
Many years ago.

Refrain:
Lead, guiding Star,
Lead, guiding Star,
Lead Thou me on as in dear Bethlehem;
Lead, guiding Star,
Lead Thou me on
As in the days of old, bright Star of Bethlehem.

2 ‘Twas a beautiful visions that to man was giv’n,
Many years ago,
And a wonderful message that was sent from heav’n,
Many years ago;
O beautiful vision in lowly stall!
O life-giving message to great and small,
The “peace and goodwill,” bringing gladness to all,
Many years ago. [Refrain]
