Behold that star!
Behold that star up yonder!
Behold that star!
It is the star of Bethlehem.

There was no room found in the inn,
This is the star of Bethlehem,
For Him who was born free from sin.
This is the star of Bethlehem.
(Refrain)

The Wise Men came on from the East,
To worship Him, the Prince of Peace.
(Refrain)

A song broke forth upon the night,
From angel hosts all robed in white.
(Refrain)
