  Star Of The East  

 

Star of the East, that long ago
    Brought wise men on their way
Where, angels singing to and fro,
    The Child of Bethlehem lay--
Above that Syrian hill afar
Thou shinest out to-night, O Star!

Star of the East, the night were drear
    But for the tender grace
That with thy glory comes to cheer
    Earth's loneliest, darkest place;
For by that charity we see
Where there is hope for all and me.

Star of the East! show us the way
    In wisdom undefiled
To seek that manger out and lay
    Our gifts before the child--
To bring our hearts and offer them
Unto our King in Bethlehem!

       - Eugene Field
