During our last fund drive one donor said this: "I love hymns ... If you asked for money, it means you need it! Please keep the work going. And please, accept my widow's mite. God bless you."

She was right. We only ask for money twice a year, and we do so because we need it.

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.

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]
