The star that they had seen when it rose went before them until it came to rest over the place where the Child was. Matthew 2:9
A most beautiful star burst out one night,
And it shone with such splendor and holy delight,
That wise men from the East, a country afar,
Beheld with great joy that dear beautiful star.
Like a radiant gem it shone upon them,
And led them rejoicing to Bethlehem;
And the story it told, more precious than gold,
Will ever to glory the way unfold.
’Twas a Savior they sought, ’twas a Savior they found,
And they told the glad story the country around;
Shall not we be as wise as those from afar,
And follow the beams of the beautiful star?
That bright Bethlehem star is shining yet;
It arose in its beauty, but never will set;
For the time draweth nigh when nations afar
Shall walk in the light of that beautiful star.
