Star of the East

Star of the East, oh Bethlehem star,

Guiding us on to heaven afar

Sorrow and grief and lull'd by the light

Thou hope of each mortal, in death's lonely night

Fearless and tranquil, we look up to Thee

Knowing thou be m'st through eternity

Help us to follow where Thou still dost guide

Pilgrims of earth so wise


Star of the East, thou hope of the soul

While round us here the dark billows roll

Lead us from sin to glory afar

Thou star of the East, thou sweet Bethlehem's star

Star of the East, oh Bethlehem's star,

What tho' the storms of riat gather loud

Faithful and pure thy rays beam to save

And bright o'er the grave

Smile of a Saviour are mirror'd in Thee

Glimpses of Heav'n in thy light we see

Guide us still onward to that blessed shore

After earth toil is o'er

Star of the East, thou hope of the soul

Oh star that leads to God above

Whose rays are peace and joy and love

Watch o'er us still till life hath ceased

Beam on, bright star, sweet Bethlehem star
