Star

O Star shining bright
Yet such a strange light!
You travel so fast
Like a cloud on the wind!
Your trail seems to beckon
To follow, to follow!
Whence do we go?
And what will we find?

O Mysterious sight!
Riding all night.
Lighting the earth
With ethereal splendour!
Hither we hasten,
To follow, to follow!
Whence do we go?
And what will we find?

O star are you stopping?
Where cattle are cropping?
O'er stable so poor?
Not a castle or palace?
Not a rich door?
To follow, to follow!
Whence do we go?
And what will we find?

Star

O a glow you are making
On roof and on floor!
Let us enter and see
Is this the wonder foretold?
O quietly we enter.
To follow, to follow,
Hence do we go?
And what do we find?

O man, and his maid!
A stable, and babe!
An ox and an ass!
Mighty Kings and poor shepherds!
The silence and peace.
So follow, so follow,
We see it all now,
We sought and we found.

O star that has led us
We thank you and bless you.
We will follow, yes follow
Our Jesus, our King!
