Musical offering for Epiphany

O beautiful star of Bethlehem,
Shining afar through shadows dim,
Giving a light for those who long have gone,
And guiding the wise men on their way
Unto the place where Jesus lay;
Beautiful star of Bethlehem, shine on.

Beautiful star of Bethlehem,
Shine upon us until the glory dawns;
Give us thy light to light the way
Unto the land of perfect day;
Beautiful star of Bethlehem, shine on.

O beautiful star, the hope of light,
Guiding the pilgrim through the night,
Over the mountain till the break of dawn,
And into the light of perfect day,
It will give out a lovely ray;
Beautiful star of Bethlehem, shine on.

Beautiful star of Bethlehem,
Shine upon us until the glory dawns;
Give us thy light to light the way
Unto the land of perfect day;
Beautiful star of Bethlehem, shine on. 

O beautiful star, the hope of rest
For the redeemed, the good and blessed,
Yonder in glory when the crown is won;
For Jesus is now that star divine,
Brighter and brighter He will shine;
Beautiful star of Bethlehem, shine on.

Beautiful star of Bethlehem,
Shine upon us until the glory dawns;
Give us thy light to light the way
Unto the land of perfect day;
Beautiful star of Bethlehem, shine on.
