HENRY G. TREMBATH
(d=120) From the East-ern moun-tains, Press-ing on they come, Wise men in their
2 There their Lord and Saviour
Those who never knew Thee,
Those who've wandered far,
Lead them by the brightness
Of Thy guiding Star.
Light of Light, etc.
5 Onward through the darkness
Of the lonely night,
Shining still before them,
With Thy kindly light,
Guide them, Jew and Gentile, 3 Thou Who in a manger
Homeward from afar,
Young and old together,
By Thy guiding Star.
Light of Light, etc.
6 Until every nation,
Whether bond or free,
'Neath Thy starlit banner,
Jesus, follows Thee
O'er the distant mountains 4 Gather in the outcasts,
To that heavenly home,
Where nor sin nor sorrow
Evermore shall come.
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,
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;
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;
zon a-dorn-ing, Guide where our in- fant Re - deem - er is laid. A-men.
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,
“ Behold, the kingdom is at hand!” Amen.
