O [D D7] star of wonder star of night [G C G] Star with royal beauty bright [G C G] Westward leading still proceeding [Em D C D] Guide us to thy perfect light [G C G] Born a king on Bethlehem plain. Gold I bring to crown him again. King forever ceasing never. Over us all to reign. Frankincense to offer have I. Incense owns a deity night. Prayer and praising, all men raising. Worship Him, God on high. Myrrh is mine; it's bitter perfume. Breathes a life of gathering gloom. Sorrowing, sighing, bleeding, dying, Sealed in a stone cold tomb. Glorious now behold him arise, King and God, and sacrifice; Heaven sings Alleluia; Alleluia the earth replies.
