The Star of Bethlehem
Gustave Doré


Under the stars, one holy night,
A little Babe was born;
Over His head a star shone bright,
And glistened till the morn;
And wise men came from far away,
And shepherds wondered where He lay
Upon His lowly bed of hay,
Under the stars one night.

Under the stars, one blessèd night,
The Christ-Child came on earth,
And thro’ the darkness broke the light
Of morning at His birth!
And sweet hosannas filled the air,
And guardian angels watched Him where
The virgin mother knelt in prayer,
Under the stars one night.

Under the stars this happy night,
We wait for Him once more,
And seem to see the wondrous sight
The shepherds saw of yore.
O Baby born in Bethlehem!
Come to us as You came to them,
And crown us with love’s diadem,
Under the stars tonight.
