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?

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]
