The Star of Bethlehem
Gustave Doré (1832-1883)

Star of beauty, Bethlehem’s star,
We follow, follow on!
Leading pilgrims from afar,
We follow, follow on.
While the herald angels sing,
We may find the Savior King,
Love and praise and gladness bring;
We follow, follow on.

Refrain

Star, star, beautiful star,
We follow, follow on;
Star, star, wonderful star,
We follow, follow on.

Star of beauty, star of joy,
We follow, follow on;
Shine for every girl and boy,
We follow, follow on.
God’s own Word our light shall be,
Till the heavenly Child we see;
Shine for others, shine for me;
We follow, follow on.

Refrain

Star that guides to Jesus still,
We follow, follow on;
Marching up to Zion’s hill,
We follow, follow on.
Every Bible word we learn,
Like a star will brightly burn,
Till our hearts to Jesus turn;
We follow, follow on.

Refrain
