Suggested Tune GREENSLEEVES (188.8.131.52. and refrain.)
1. Although no star led us from far
to show us where to find our King
though it may be, unlike those three,
we have no lavish gifts to bring.
Light, light has pierced our night
to see the Christ revealed to us!
We see now the mystery,
that God gives Himself in Jesus.
2. Arise and shine, our light has come,
the glory of the Holy One,
let's lift our eyes, see hope arise:
The gift of God, His only Son.
3. Oh, let our hearts rejoice and sing
and let that be the gift we bring:
We'll sing His praise for all our days
until once more we see His face.
