1. O wondrous star of Bethlehem!
    That in the heavens bright,
Shone forth to guide the pilgrims' feet
    Unto the Prince of Light,
Shine on thro' endless ages,
    While ringing thro' the sky;
His loyal ones still hear the song:
    "Glory to God on high!"

Refrain:
Shine on, Bethlehem's star,
Send thy light afar,
Tell of Jesus' birth
Till His glory fills the earth.

2. O blessed star of Bethlehem!
    Still gild with heav'nly ray.
The pathway to the Holy one
    Who comes to us to-day.
Gleam thro' the darksome shadows
    That fill the heart with fear.
Till weary souls shall see the light
    Knowing that Christ is near. Refrain.

3. O wondrous star of Bethlehem!
    Shine on; we too would bring
Our lives a willing sacrifice,
    With gladness to the King.
With joy we travel onward,
    Encircled by the glow
The glory of the fadeless Star.
    Jesus whose love we know. Refrain.
