1. O wondrous star of Bethlehem!
That in the heavens bright
Shone forth to guide the pilgrims’ feet,
Unto the Prince of Light,
Shine on thro’ endless ages,
While ringing thro’ the sky;
His loyal ones still hear the song:
Glory to God on high!
Shine on, Bethlehem’s star,
Send thy light afar;
Tell of Jesus’ birth
Till His glory fills the earth.
2. O blessèd star of Bethlehem!
Still gild with heav’nly ray
The pathway to the Holy One
Who comes to us today.
Gleam thro’ the darksome shadows
That fill the heart with fear,
Till weary souls shall see the light,
Knowing that Christ is near. [Refrain]
3. O wondrous star of Bethlehem!
Shine on; we too would bring
Our lives a willing sacrifice,
With gladness to the King.
With joy we travel onward,
Encircled by the glow—
The glory of the fadeless Star,
Jesus, whose love we know. [Refrain]
