The Star of Bethlehem
Gustave Doré (1832-1883)

Have you seen the Star that shines to guide the traveler on,
As he journeys, homesick with his heavy load of care?
It will guide him safely over to that happy home,
Where the saints of all ages are sweetly resting there.

Refrain

O this bright Star forever shall shine,
Though for a while earth’s storms may assail;
Heaven’s sweet home at last shall be thine;
Judah’s bright Star o’er all shall prevail.

O the wise men from afar did come to see the sight,
And the shepherds sang for joy that bright and happy morn;
Yes, the wise men did rejoice that calm and peaceful night,
When they knew that the promised Messiah had been born.

Refrain

Brother, don’t fold up your hands and stand in darkness here,
When you have a guide that will not let you go astray;
Jesus is the Star to lead you to a home so dear;
He will guide, safely guide to the land of endless day.

Refrain
