1. Beautiful star of Bethlehem, shine
Over the hills of Palestine;
There the child Jesus slumbereth sweet,
And we would bow at His holy feet.

Refrain
Beautiful star of Bethlehem, shine
Over the hills of Palestine;
Beautiful star of Bethlehem, shine
Over the hills of Palestine.

2. Beautiful star of Bethlehem, shine,
Shedding thy beauteous rays divine;
Light the dark places held in sin’s thrall,
Bringing thy peace and good-will to all. [Refrain]

3. Beautiful star of Bethlehem, shine
Into the hearts that faint and pine;
Show the child Jesus, humble, but king,
Born to compassion and comfort bring. [Refrain]

4. Beautiful star of Bethlehem, shine
Over this earthly home of mine,
How the child Jesus dwelling with me,
Keepeth me pure and from sinning free. [Refrain]
