Lyrics brought to you by Segnbora-t


Christmas carol/hymn by Philipp Nicolai and Johann Sebastian Bach (My songbook lists both as music authors; various net sources list one or the other; one source says C. Winkworth wrote the English words and none of the rest give authors.)

How brightly beams the Morning Star!
What sudden radiance from afar
Doth glad us with its shining.
Thy word, Jesus, truly feeds us,
Rightly leads us, life bestowing.
Praise, O praise such love o'er flowing.

The ray of God that breaks our night
And fills the darkened souls with light,
Who long for truth were pining.
Thy word, Jesus, truly feeds us,
Rightly leads us, life bestowing.
Praise, O praise such love o'er flowing.
