And lo! The Star,
Which they saw in the East,
Went before them,
Till it came and stood over
Where the young Child was.
1. Star of glory! Brightly streaming,
Welcome, oh! Thou blessed star!
Star that erst serenely beaming,
Led the wise men from afar.
Thou their wand’ring footsteps leddest,
Star of Glory, planet mild!
Till thy heav’nly light thou sheddest
O’er the holy, blessed Child.
2. Holy Father! Thou who gavest
Them that light and grace to see!
Holy Son! O Christ, who savest
All that look for light to Thee!
Holy Spirit, ever pouring
Grace on them that seek aright!
Grant us, Lord, with hearts adorning,
Still to walk with Thee in light.
