Bethlehem's Star

Bethlehem’s star has not dimmed its glow
It beams clearly now as it did long ago
Into the darkness of earth’s desperate night
Bethlehem’s star still offers His light

Still now we gather in awe of His might
To wonder and worship and seek this true Light
Over each cradle and grave see it shine
Mercy and goodness and love so divine

‘Peace on the earth and goodwill to all men’
A message of hope as true now as then
Come one and all, oh, come as you are
Follow the Light of Bethlehem’s star

“Where is the one who has been born king of the Jews? We saw his star when it rose and have come to worship him.” Matt. 2:1


  1. Janet- This is written so beautifully. Merry Christmas!

  2. Thank-you Laurie,
    Merry Christmas to you too.

  3. Janet, nothing I can add to this.

    Bethlehem's star is the brightest star in the sky, tonight and tomorrow night, and always.
