BRIGHT AND GLORIOUS IS THE SKY

 

        1. Bright and glorious is the sky,
        Radiant are the heavens high
        Where the golden stars were shining
        And their rays to earth inclining,
        :/: Beckoning us to heaven above :/:

        2. On that holy Christmas night
        Through the darkness beamed a light
        All the stars above were paling,
        All their luster slowly failing,
        :/: As the Christmas star drew nigh :/:

        3. Sages from the East afar,                            5. Guided by the star they found
        When they saw this wondrous star,                  Him Whose praise the ages sound,
        Went to find the King of nations,                       We too have a star to guide us           
        And to offer their oblations                               Which forever will provide us
        :/: Unto Him as Lord and King :/:                     :/: With the light to find our Lord :/:

        4. Him they found in Bethlehem,                       6. As a star Godís holy Word             
        Yet He wore no diadem;                                  
Leads us to our King and Lord;
        They but saw a maiden lowly
                       Brightly from its sacred pages
        With an Infant pure and holy,
                       Shall this light throughout the ages
        :/: Resting in her loving arms :/:
                  :/: Shine upon our path of life :/:
