The star that shone o’er Bethlehem
And cast its radiant light
Its brilliance far surpassed
All other star’s that night.
The cross that was raised on Golgotha’s hill
And cast its shadow far.
In every heart has been enshrined
And far exceeds the star.
The star whose light did foretell
The birth of our dear Lord
The cross, whose message was for all,
The fulfillment of God’s word.
At this glad Easter time
We thank Thee, Lord. Of all.
For the blessed cross, on which He died
To save us from the fall.
