O Lovely Star

O lovely star in heaven so bright

Tune: [O lovely star in heav'n so bright]
Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

1 O lovely star in heav'n so bright,
That guides the shepherds thro' the night
To where the blessed Saviour lay,
In Bethlehem's manger far away.

O Star divine, shed on us here
Thy beams of love and Christmas cheer,
And angels sing the song again
Of peace on earth, goodwill to men.

2 O lovely star, direct our feet,
That we may haste our Lord to greet;
And gather 'round like Magi old,
Or shepherds, hast'ning from the fold. [Chorus]

3 O Star divine illume our way,
That we may gain eternal day,
And live while endless ages roll,
Safe sheltered in Thy heav'nly fold. [Chorus]
