Dawn Foss – Oh Star/Away In A Manger/Your Peace lyrics

Source unknown, stanza 3 by John Thomas McFarland, music by William J. Kirkpatrick and James R. Murray

(Oh Star)
Oh star, oh star, oh wonderful star,
You guided me with your light.
You led me to where
I know that He cares,
As I see fulfilled promise in sight.

Oh star, oh star, oh dazzling star,
So glad I can be here tonight.
I’ll not forget
This special moment,
That has changed my entire life!

(Away in a Manger, cradle version then regular version)
Away in a manger, no crib for a bed,
The little Lord Jesus lay down His sweet head.
The stars in the bright sky looked down where He lay,
The little Lord Jesus asleep on the hay.

Be near me, Lord Jesus; I ask Thee to stay
Close by me forever, and love me, I pray,
Bless all the dear children in Thy tender care,
And fit us for heaven, to live with Thee there.

(Your Peace)
The peace that was thought to have come from this birth,
Was one that would conquer and kill;
Yet this babe came forth to bring peace in our hearts,
A spiritual conquest to fulfill.

Your peace, Your peace, your beautiful peace,
Divine healer of my soul;
Please hear the prayer of your servant here,
Tonight please make me whole.

(Oh Star, ending)
Oh star, oh star, oh wonderful star,
To be here I am so thrilled!
So glad I was led
To His manger bed,
To see God’s promise fulfilled.
Born here to save the world!
