The Star of Bethlehem
Edward Coley Burne-Jones (1833-1898)

I think of that star of long ago
That lighted the wanderers’ path below;
In faith I look up, and o’er me I see
That star in its beauty still shining for me.

Refrain

O star that once shone over Bethlehem!
Thy beams yet to mortals great joy proclaim.
The Lord to adore, I hasten with thee,
O star in thy beauty still shining for me.

A child unto us is born—O joy!
To sin blighted earth comes high Heav’n’s envoy;
Now over my path that dear memory,
A star in its beauty is shining for me.

Refrain

No clouds can obscure that kindly star,
Nor brightness of noonday its glories mar;
When shadows of death surround me, I’ll see
That star in its beauty still shining for me.

Refrain

It sheds on the world its peaceful rays,
And greets every mortal with heav’nly grace.
To Bethlehem’s Babe I hasten with thee,
O star, in thy beauty, still shining for me.

Refrain
