Star over Bethlehem, a translation of Stern űber Bethlehem

with one comment


Star over Bethlehem

1. Star over Bethlehem

Show us the way

Lead us to the crib again

Stand where it may

Please shine upon our path

To the manger mild

Star over Bethlehem

Show us the child.

2. Star over Bethlehem

Now you stand still

So that we all can see

God’s wondrous will

Imagine what happened!

No one thought it might

Star over Bethlehem

On that cold night

3. Star over Bethlehem

We have arrived

In this poor stall in which

Such goodness hides.

We’re filled with thankfulness

To our guide so dear

Star over Bethlehem

We’re staying here.

4. Star over Bethlehem

We’re going home.

Your warm and holy light

In us has shone

And all the happiness

We can’t wait to share

Star over Bethlehem

Follow us there.
