1 The star that shone o’er Bethlehem
Is shining now for me,
To guide my feet thro’ tangled paths,
Dear Savior, unto Thee.

Refrain:
O blessèd star, O radiant light
Shine on me from afar,
And guide me to my home above,
Where many mansions are.

2 Its rays are streaming from above,
Thro’ God’s own word so true;
They fill my soul with sweeter peace
Than sinners ever knew. [Refrain]

3 O may I like the men of old,
Be led, O star, by thee,
Until I reach my heavenly home,
And my Deliv’rer see. [Refrain]
