The Hymns and Carols of Christmas

When The Stars Of Morning Sang

When the stars of morning sang
    Long ago,
Sweet the air with music rang
    Through the snow,
There beside the mother mild
Slept the blessed Christmas child,—
Slumber holy, undefiled—
    Here below.

When the wise men traveled far
    Through the night,
Following the guiding star
    Pure and bright,
Lo! it stood above the place
Sanctified by Heaven's grace,
And upon the Christ-Child's face
    Shed its light.

When the world lay hushed and still
    Christmas morn,
Suddenly were skies athrill—
    "Christ is born!"
Angel voices, high and clear,
Chanted tidings of good cheer,
"See, the Infant King is here,
    Christ is born!"
