HIS ADVENT AND BIRTH
139
2  There their Lord and Saviour
Meek and lowly lay, Wondrous light that led them
Onward on their way, Ever now to lighten
Nations from afar, As they journey homeward
By that guiding star.
3  Thou who in a manger
Once hast lowly lain, Who dost now in glory
O'er all kingdoms reign, Gather in the heathen,
Who in lands afar Ne'er have seen the brightness
Of Thy guiding star.
4  Onward through the darkness
Of the lonely night, Shining still before them
With Thy kindly light, Guide them, Jew and Gentile,
Homeward from afar, Young and old together,
By Thy guiding star.
5  Until every nation,
Whether bond or free, 'Neath Thy starlit banner,
Jesus, follows Thee O'er the distant mountains
To that heavenly home, Where no sin nor sorrow
Evermore shall come.
Rev. Godfrey Thring, 1879
