The shepherds keep-ing sheep in the fields: This is Christmas.
The baby in the stable revealed: This is Christmas.
Shine out silver star illuminate the night sky from afar.
Shine out silver star: light to the peo-ple at Christmas.

The wise men came to Bethlehem town. This is Christmas.
To find the king they travelled around. This is Christmas.
Shine out silver star illuminate the night sky from afar.
Shine out silver star: light to the peo-ple at Christmas.

Not the Christmas lights, the silver trappings.
Not the shops at night, the coloured wrappings.

But ev'ry deed of love on the earth: this is Christ-mas.
A gracious gift from God at his birth: this is Christ-mas.
Shine out silver star, illuminate the night sky from afar.
Shine out silver star: light to the people at Christmas.
For ev'ry deed of love on the earth. Shine out, Shine out, Shine.
