The Hymn Of The Bethlehem Star


May the hymn of the Bethlehem Star

That guided the wise men from afar

Inspire the melody of our song

While we sing of Jesus all day long.

Let Mary’s soft sweet lullaby

Remind us to bid wrong goodbye

As we croon the peaceful tune

That Christmas Day is coming soon.

Propelling us to hum of love

And sparkle like the star above

The little Christ-child’s aria of light

Can humble the most daring knight.

Knowing that The Truth was born for us

The Christmas way is not superfluous

Since The Star of Christmas Eve

Commands a choir of all who in Him believe.
