1. Now to Bethlehem haste we;
See the Eastern Kings
Make the new-born Saviour
Free-will offerings!

2. They would ne'er have known Him
In their country far,
Had not God, in mercy,
Placed in Heav'n a star.

3. Blessed Star! outshining
Through the darkest night,
Leading up to Jesus,
Who is Light of Light.

4. Sing we now, rejoicing,
For to us as well
That bright star so glorious
Doth glad tidings tell.

5. Even we are Gentiles,
As were happy they,
Who were led to Jesus
Bringing gifts today.

6. With them let us worship,
For our Light has come;
Star of Bethlehem! lead us
Safe to Heaven our Home.
