Title: Wise Men from the East
Composer: Adam Geibel
Original text and translations
To hear from the King of the Child that was born.
The Saviour we praise on the glad Christmas morn.
Wise men from the East to the country afar,
Came bringing gifts, guided there by the star
O star of Bethlehem, In spendor shining.
Guiding thy children, Lord, safely to thee:
O star of the East, by thy lustre so bright,
Today thou dost shed o'er the earth wond'rous light.
They heard of the Child and to Bethlehem went.
So brightly the star o'er their path halo lent.
What joy when they find him their spirits now move.
They fall down and worship the God of their love.
Today we would hear of the Child that was born.
Of thee may we sing on the glad Christmas morn;
Lord guide us to thee, to our radiant Star,
As safely as they followed thee from afar.
Lyrics: Ann Godshall
