Bethlehem Star
Words and music by Ray Boltz and Mark Pay, Music by Steve Millikan, Ray Boltz, and Mark Pay
When God created the heaven and earth
He said let there be light
And a million shining stars appeared
On the canvas of the night
They all declared the glory
Of the Father up above
But only one startled the way
To His greatest gift of love
CHORUS:
Bethlehem starHow beautiful you are
Shining in the darkness
Guiding strangers from afar
As your light fills the heavens
His love fills my heart
So shine for me myBethlehem star
From far away the wise men came
To find the tiny King
In Bethlehem they worshipped Him
And gave their offerings
Star up in the heavens
Without your holy light
They would still be searching
Somewhere in the night
CHORUS (repeat)
I may not be a wise man
And I don't have much to bring
But my heart is my gift of love
So lead me to the King
Bethlehem starHow beautiful you are
Shining in the darkness
Guiding strangers from afar
As your light fills the heavens
His love fills my heart
So shine for me myBethlehem star
Oh that I might worship Him
Shine for meBethlehem star
