The Star of Bethlehem
Gustave Doré (1832-1883)

Stars of December, shining so bright,
Do you remember one holy night,
When from the portals of realms above,
Radiant immortals sang of God’s love?

Refrain

Stars of December, well you remember
Visions of beauty, visions of splendor;
Stars of December, well you remember
Stars of December, shining so bright.

Stars of December, shining so clear,
Do you remember one peerless star?
Eastward ’twas leading men good and wise,
God’s message reading there in the skies.

Refrain

Stars of December, shining so clear,
Do you remember that message dear?
Wonderful story, Peace and good will,
Tidings of glory echoing still.

Refrain
