1. See the brightly shining star,
As its radiance beams afar,
Guide the feet of weary pilgrims
To the place where Jesus lay.
Like a beacon from its height,
Burning brightly in the night,
As the wise men followed onward,
Safely guided all the way.

Shine on! shine on!
Beautiful star of light;
Shine on! shine on!
Cheering the gloomy night;
Shine on! shine on!
Sending thy rays afar,
Shine on thro’ the darkness,
Oh, thou fairest star.

2. It is shining still for thee,
With a glory fair to see,
As it leadeth ever upward
To the palace of the King.
So we follow thro’ the night,
Safely guided by its light,
While our hearts respond with gladness
To the song the angels sing. [Refrain]

3. So today that star alone
Is the light to lead us on
To the feet of Christ our Savior,
He our Prophet, Priest and King,
As it brightly burns above,
Sentry of the King of love,
While we follow onward, upward
And His praises sweetly sing. [Refrain]
