Arr. from Conrad Kocher, 1838
men of old Did the guid - ing star be - hold; with joy they hailed its light, Lead - ing on - ward, beam - ing bright;}
2 Cold on His cradle the dewdrops are shining;
Low lies His head with the beasts of the stall:
Maker and Monarch and Saviour of all.
3 Say, shall we yield Him, in costly devotion,
Odors of Edom and offerings Divine,
Myrrh from the forest, or 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;
Bishop Reginald Heber, 1811
1 From the east-ern mountains, Press-ing on, they come, Wise men in their wis - dom,
Ere the worlds be - gan, Draw Thou near,and light - en Ev-ery heart of man. A-MEN.
(See also Sr. ALBAN, No. 239) 2 Thou who in a manger
3 Gather in the outcasts,
All who've gone astray,
Throw Thy radiance o'er them,
Guide them on their way:
Those who never knew Thee,
Those who've wandered far,
Of Thy guiding star.
Light of life, etc.
4 Onward through the darkness
Of the lonely night,
With Thy kindly light,
Homeward from afar,
5 Until every nation,
Whether bond or free,
Jesus, follows Thee
To that heavenly home,
Rev. Godfrey Thring, 1873

2 Sunbeams scorching all the day;
Chilly dewdrops nightly shed; Prowling beasts about Thy way;
Stones Thy pillow; earth Thy bed.
4 And if Satan, vexing sore,
Flesh or spirit should assail, Thou, his Vanquisher before,
Grant we may not faint nor fail.
3 Shall not we Thy sorrow share, 5 So shall we have peace Divine; And from earthly joys abstain,
Holier gladness ours shall be; Fasting with unceasing prayer,
Round us too shall angels shine, Glad with Thee to suffer pain?
Such as ministered to Thee.
