Oh Beautiful Star of Bethlehem
Shining afar through shadows dim
Giving the light for those who long have gone
Guiding the wise men on their way
Unto the place where Jesus lay
Oh Beautiful Star of Bethlehem shine on.

Oh Beautiful Star of Bethlehem (Star of Bethlehem)
Shine upon us until the glory dawns.
Give us a light to guide the way
Unto the land of perfect day
Oh Beautiful Star of Bethlehem, shine on (shine on)

Oh Beautiful Star the hope of light
Guiding the pilgrims through the night
Over the mountains till the break of dawn
Into the light of perfect day
It will give out a lovely ray
Oh Beautiful Star of Bethlehem shine on (shine on)

Oh Beautiful Star the hope of rest
For the redeemed the good and blessed
Yonder in glory when the crown is won
Jesus is now the star divine
Brighter and brighter he will shine
Oh Beautiful Star of Bethlehem shine on (shine on)

    The beautiful star of bethleham is jesus christ. The last verse says it all.

    Oh beautiful star the hope of rest
    for the redeemed the good and blessed
    yonder in glory when the crown is won
    jesus is now the star divine
    brighter and brighter he will shine
    oh beautiful star of bethlehem shine on.

    Just as the star of bethleham was intended to lead and guide the
    Wise men to jesus,that same star is now jesus and is intinded to
    Lead and guide all people to gods' plan of salvation. Also to help
    Us through lifes' daily trials and problems.
