Star of the East

by Francis Armstrong Amateur


Star of the east, Holy sight!
‘Mid the snow, guiding light
Magi that travelled from Chaldea
From heaven’s chorus hear Alleluia
Mary’s infant is born,
Mary’s infant is born.

Star of the East, Holy sight
Shepherds follow its new light
Tremble at the heavenly song
Angelic symphony all night long
For man Emmanuel is born
For man Emmanuel is born.

Star of the East, Holy sight
Heralds us the holy night
Grace poured out on all at his birth
All power given, new king on earth
A covenant renewed at his birth
A covenant fulfilled at his death.

Christmas song lyrics by Francis Armstrong music by Marianna Moes.
