1 O lovely star that shone so bright,
While shepherds watched their flocks by night,
To lead the wise men on their way,
Where Christ our Lord and Savior lay.

Hark! hark! the chorus sounding still,
From snowy vale and distant hill;
The angel breathes to earth again,
"Peace! peace on earth, good will to men."

2 O star that shone in brightness there,
Above the Babe, so sweet and fair,
Again you beam above the earth,
And tell the Savior’s endless worth. [Refrain]

3 O lovely star! each cloud of gloom
Thy beaming rays of joy illume!
And all our sorrow dies away,
When thou has brought Messiah’s day. [Refrain]

4 Hosanna! to the Lord our king!
In cheerful voices we will sing,
Good angels answer us again:
"Peace! peace on earth, good will to men." [Refrain]
