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
Words: Fanny B. Earle, in the Primary Teachers’ Manual, edited by Christopher R. Blackall (Philadelphia, Pennsylvania: American Baptist Publication Society, 1913), number 27.

Wise men in the East, we’re told,
Did a wondrous star behold;
Gem of Heaven’s diadem,
’Twas the Star of Bethlehem.
They beheld it from afar,
Knew it was their guiding star;
To the Christ Child leading them;
Blessèd Star of Bethlehem.
Gifts they brought of wealth untold,
Myrrh and frankincense and gold;
And they knelt their vows to pay,
To the King on this glad day.
