Another addition to the Everything Hymnal
aka "Song of the Wise Men". Always a favorite of my parent's church around Christmas
time. It sounds exceptionally cool when sung by an all male chorus. Sometimes nicknamed the "camel song".
~Lovely Eastern Star~
From a distant home, The Savior we come seeking,
Using as our guide the star, so brightly beaming.
Lovely Eastern Star, that tells us of God's morning,
Heaven's wondrous light,
O never cease Thy shining, peace and love to men.
Glory in the Highest to the Son of Heaven,
And upon the earth be
Glowing gold I bring to the new-born Babe so holy,
Token of His pow'r to reign above in glory.
Frankincence I bring to the Child of God's own choosing,
Token of our pray'rs to Heaven ever rising.
Bitter myrrh have I to give the infant Jesus,
Token of the pain the He will bear to save us.
