Representative Text

1 Oh, beautiful gems of the night,
Bedecking the cloudless blue,
From whence is thy glittering light,
And what is thy mission true?

Refrain:
Oh beautiful stars,
That gem the brow of night,
We gaze upon thee from afar
As lamps that angels light.

2 Oh, beautiful gems of the night,
Illuming the heavenly way,
Oh say, does thou make the way bright
That leads to eternal day? [Refrain]

3 Oh, beautiful gems of the night,
Shine on in thy blue arched dome,
Till Christ, in His glorious light
Shall gather us safely home. [Refrain]
