1. Lo! a star, ye sages hoary;
Lo! a wondrous star above,
He is born, the King of glory,
He, our wondrous star of love.
Lord of Life, Redeemer, Master,
Loud the shepherds' welcome rolls,
He is born the peoples' pastor,
He the Shepherd of our souls.

2. When from Thee we fain would borrow
Peace for heart and soul opprest,
Child of sorrows, heal our sorrow;
Spirit, give our spirits rest.
Let all evil past behaviour
In Thy love forgotten be,
Let our spirits, gentle Saviour,
Be this day new-born with Thee.
