lyrics

Star of the East, O heavenly star,
Shining so bright; how lovely you are!
Sorrow and grief eclipsed by your light
The hope of each mortal on this holy night!

Fearless and tranquil, we look up to see
Your shining beacon through eternity.
Help us to follow as you lead the way,
Walking your path each day.

Star of the East, O hope of the soul,
Drawing us near to God, this we know.
Show us the love and glory divine.
O Bethlehem star with promise you shine.

O star that leads to God above!
Whose rays are peace and joy and love!
Watch over us still from your home afar
Beam on, bright star, sweet Bethlehem star.

Star of the East, the night is so clear.
Over the manger you hover near.
Shining your light so all will know
Sent by the Father, the Son loves us so.

Star of the East, the heavens made bright
With the reflection of your great light.
Faithful and pure, your rays from above
Shine on the cradle with love.

Star of the East, thou hope of the soul,
Drawing us near to God, this we know.
Show us the love and glory divine.
O Bethlehem star with promise you shine.

O star that leads to God above!
Whose rays are peace and joy and love!
Watch over us still from your home afar
Beam on, bright star, sweet Bethlehem star.

I use music as a positive influence in my life and in the lives of others and as a means to encourage myself and others to be active participants in life, rather than only observers. It is never too late to try something new! ... more
