Refrain:
Behold the star!
Behold the star up yonder!
Behold the star!
It is the star of Bethlehem.
Behold the star!
Behold the star up yonder!
Behold the star!
It is the star of Bethlehem.

1 There was no room found in the inn,
It is the star of Bethlehem.
For Him who was born free from sin.
It is the star of Bethlehem. Oh, [Refrain]

2 The wise men came from the East
It is the star of Bethlehem.
To worship him, the "Prince of Peace."
It is the star of Bethlehem. Oh, [Refrain]

3 A song broke forth upon the night.
It is the star of Bethlehem.
Peace on earth, good-will to men.
It is the star of Bethlehem. Oh, [Refrain]
