1. There's a beautiful star, a beautiful star,
That weary trav'lers have followed afar;
Shining so brightly all the way,
Till it stood o'er the place where the young Child lay.

Star, star, beautiful star!
Pilgrims weary we are;
To Jesus, to Jesus,
We follow thee from afar.

2. In the land of the East, in the shadows of night,
We saw the glory of thy new light;
Telling to us, in our distant home,
The Lord, our Redeemer, to earth had come! Refrain

3. We have gold for tribute and gifts for prayer,
Sweet incense, myrrh, and spices rare:
All that we have we hither bring,
To lay it with joy at the feet of the King. Refrain
