Religious Music – Bright Was The Guiding Star lyrics

Bright was the guiding star that led
With mild, benignant ray
The Gentiles to the lowly she'd
Where the Redeemer lay.

But lo! a brighter, clearer, light
Now points to His abode
It shines, through sin and sorrow's night
To guide us to our God.

Oh! haste to follow where it leads
The gracious call obey
Be rugged wilds, or flowery meads
The Christian's destined way.

Oh! gladly tread the narrow path
While light and grace are given
Who meekly follow Christ on earth
Shall reign with Him in Heaven...
