2 There their Lord and Saviour

Those who never knew Thee,
Meek and lowly lay,

Those who've wandered far,
Wondrous Light that led them

Lead them by the brightness
Onward on their way,

Of Thy guiding Star.
Ever now to lighten

Light of Light, etc.
Nations from afar,

5 Onward through the darkness
As they journey homeward

Of the lonely night,
By that guiding Star.

Shining still before them,
Light of Light, etc.

With Thy kindly light,

Guide them, Jew and Gentile, 3 Thou Who in a manger

Homeward from afar,
Once hast lowly lain,

Young and old together,
Who dost now in glory

By Thy guiding Star.
O'er all kingdoms reign,

Light of Light, etc.
Gather in the heathen,
Who in lands afar

6 Until every nation,
Ne'er have seen the brightness

Whether bond or free,
Of Thy guiding Star.

'Neath Thy starlit banner,
Light of Light, etc.

Jesus, follows Thee

O'er the distant mountains 4 Gather in the outcasts,

To that heavenly home,
All who've gone astray,

Where nor sin nor sorrow
Throw Thy radiance o'er them,

Evermore shall come.
Guide them on their way,

Light of Light, etc. Amen. (May be sung to Hermas, No. 117)

Un - til it came and stood be-side The place where Je-sus lay; A - men.

2 Although by stars Thou dost not lead 3 As yet we know Thee but in part; Thy servants now below,

But still we trust Thy word Thy Holy Spirit, when they need

That blessèd are the pure in heart, Will show them how to go.

For they shall see the Lord. 4 O Saviour, give us then Thy grace

To make us pure in heart,
That we may see Thee face to face
Hereafter as Thou art. Amen.

2 Cold on His cradle the dew-drops are shining,

Low lies His head with the beasts of the stall, Angels adore Him in slumber reclining,

Maker and Monarch and Saviour of all.

3 Shall we not yield Him, in costly devotion,

Odors of Edom, and offerings divine, Gems of the mountain, and pearls of the ocean,

Myrrh from the forest, and gold from the mine?

4 Vainly we offer each ample oblation,

Vainly with gifts would His favor secure;
Richer by far is the heart's adoration,

Dearer to God are the prayers of the poor.

5 Brightest and best of the sons of the morning,

Dawn on our darkness, and lend us thine aid;
Star of the East, the horizon adorning,
Guide where our infant Redeemer is laid. Amen.

3 Kingdom of heaven! whose dawn began 5 Kingdom of peace! whose music clear

With Love's divine, incarnate breath, Swept through Judea's starlit skies, Our hearts are slow to understand Still the harsh sounds of human strife

The lessons of that Life and Death: Break on thy heavenly harmonies:

6 Yet shall thy song of triumph ring

In full accord, from land to land,
And men with angels learn to sing,

“ Behold, the kingdom is at hand!” Amen.
