1 How wise you look, little star, away
Up yonder in the sky;
How many years have you twinkled there
Above the world so high?

Chorus:
"Little star, away up yonder,
Tell me, were you shining then?
Did you hear the angels singing,
Peace! Goodwill to men?"

2 I often wonder if you were there
When Christ lay in the stall,
And if you saw, from your dizzy height,
The infant Lord of all. [Chorus]

3 If you had listened...
Could you have heard the song
That floated down on the midnight air
From that angelic throng? [Chorus]

4 Oh, yes, a wise little star are you,
Yet, not a word to say;
You watch all night o’er the drowsy earth,
And sleep all thro' the day. [Chorus]
