On that most blessed night
When Jesus Christ was born
Sop brightly shone the star above
    'twas radiant as the morn
The angels singing,
Their voices ringing
Over Bethlehem so fair
There hung a lovely star
Its beaming rays shone forth afar,
    to guide the wise men there.

Sheet Music arranged by Marx Oberndorfer, from Nols
