          O beautiful Star of Bethlehem,
          Shining afar thru shadows dim,
          Giving a light for those who long have gone, (have gone);
          And guiding the wise men on their way
          Unto the place where Jesus lay.
          Beautiful Star of Bethlehem shine on (shine on).

            Shine upon us until the glory dawn (glory dawn);
            Oh, give us Thy light to light the way
            Into the land of perfect day,
            Beautiful Star of Bethlehem shine on (shine on)

          O beautiful Star, the hope of light,
          Guiding the pilgrim thru the night,
          Over the mountain till the break of dawn (of dawn):

          Beautiful Star of Bethlehem shine on (shine on).
