Hymn/Song Information

Bright and glorious is the sky




Bright and glorious is the sky,
Radiant are the heavens high
Where the golden stars were shining
And their rays to earth inclining,
|:Beckoning us to Heaven above.:|


On that holy Christmas night
Through the darkness beamed a light
All the stars above were paling,
All their luster slowly failing,
|:As the Christmas star drew nigh.:|


Sages from the East afar,
When they saw this wondrous star,
Went to the find the King of nations,
And to offer their oblations
|:Unto Him as Lord and King.:|


Him they found in Bethlehem,
Yet He wore no diadem;
They but saw a maiden lowly
With an Infant pure and holy,
|:Resting in her loving arms.:|


Guided by the star they found
Him Whose praise the ages sound,
We too have a star to guide us
Which forever will provide us
|:With the light to find our Lord.:|


As a star Godís holy Word
Leads us to our King and Lord;
Brightly from its sacred pages
Shall this light throughout the ages
|:Shine upon our path of life.:|
