1 Stars all bright are beaming,
From the skies above,
Nature's face all gleaming,
Shines with Heav'n's own love.

Wake and sing, good Christians,
On this Birth-day Morn,
Heaven and Earth are telling
God for man is born.

2 Here for us abiding,
Cradled in a Stall,
All His glory hiding,
See the Lord of all! [Chorus]

3 Born that He might lead us,
From this desert home,
Guide our way, and feed us,
Till the end shall come. [Chorus]

4 Thousand thousand blessings
Sing we for His Love,
Choral Hymns addressing
To our Lord above. [Chorus]

5 Glory in the Highest,
For this wondrous Birth;
Choir of Heaven! thou criest
Peace to all the Earth! {Chorus]
