Under The Stars, One Holy Night

1. Under the stars, one holy night,
A little Babe was born;
Over His head a star shone bright
And glistened till the morn.
And wise men came from far away,
And shepherds hastened where He lay,
Upon His lowly bed of hay,
Under the stars one night.

2. Under the stars, one blessed night,
The Christ-child came to earth,
And thro' the darkness broke the light
Of morning at His birth.
And sweet hosannas filled the air,
And guardian angels watched Him where
The virgin mother knelt in prayer,
Under the stars one night.

3. Under the stars, this happy night,
We wait for Him once more,
And seem to see the wondrous sight
The shepherds saw of yore.
O Jesus, born in Bethlehem,
Come unto us as unto them,
And drown us with love's diadem,
Under the stars tonight.
