Representative Text

1 The myriad stars of night
Thro’ all the ages gone,
So glorious and bright,
For countless years have shone.
Each in the crown of night
Sparkles a radiant gem;
But shines with softer light
The star of Bethlehem.

Shine on, fair star of hope and love,
And guide me to the port above.

2 The majesty divine
That lit each wand’ring light,
And bade them move and shine
Each in its orbit bright;
And in the vault above
Hath placed each shining gem,
Hath giv’n in tender love
The star of Bethlehem. [Refrain]

3 Loud was the angry blast
Around my little bark;
The sky is overcast,
And all its lamps are dark:
Still thro’ the earthly night
Beams one pure sparkling gem,
The Christian’s beacon light,
The star of Bethlehem. [Refrain]
