Star of Bethlehem

Representative Text

1 O star of light! The shepherds saw,
Thy first bright beams on Judah's hill.
Thou wast the herald of our Lord:
Each trusting with rapture fill,
Beholding thee, O star of love!
Thou shinest on us from above.

2 Then Angel's song did loud proclaim,
His name who was to save the world,
And heav'nly hosts in bright array,
Their gleaming banners wide unfurled,
O star of light from far on high,
Thy glories meet each wond'ring eye.

3 Sweet star of light, sweet star of love!
We turn to thee our weary eye,
Till out of earthly toil, and pain,
We see the holy city rise,
And hear triumphant anthems swell,
Sweet star of love, farewell, farewell.
