Representative Text

1 There shone a star so strangely bright,
Its glow the rest made dim;
The wise men, guided by its light,
Sought Christ to worship him.

Refrain:
Beautiful star of Bethlehem,
Shine out in thy glory and tell the grand story
Of Christ, the Child divine!
Beautiful star of Bethlehem,
Bid all men receive him, bid all men believe him,
He comes on earth to dwell.

2 Bright star, we ever follow thee,
We trust thy guiding rays;
Thy light our joy, our hope shall be
Thro’ all life’s weary way. [Refrain]

3 Thy holy light ne’er fades away,
But brighter still doth glow;
‘Twill shine unto that perfect day
When all the Lord shall know. [Refrain]
