When marshalled on the nightly plainAuthor: Henry Kirke White
Published in 450 hymnals
1 When, marshall'd on the nightly plain,
The glittering host bestad the sky,
One star alone of all the train
Can fix the sinner's wandering eye.
2 Hark, hark! to God the chorus breaks,
From every host, from every gem;
But one alone the Saviour speaks;
It is the Star of Bethlehem.
3 It is my guide, my light, my all,
It bids my dark forebodings cease;
And through the storm and danger's thrall,
It leads me to the port of peace.
4 Then, safely moor'd, my perisl o'er,
I'll sing, first in night's diadem,
For ever and for evermore,
The Star, the Star of Bethlehem!
