Behold the Star

Representative Text

Refrain:
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. [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. [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. [Refrain]
