Once upon a shining star,
The angels did proclaim,
"We are on a mission from the most high
To sing His holy name."

"So fear ye not, oh mortal man,
Glad tidings we now bring.
God has looked upon you with Grace
And sent to you a king."

Man looked up with mortal eyes,
Eternity to behold.
His heart with rapture awaiting
The Promise to unfold.

And underneath the brightest star,
A newborn baby lay,
To teach us, heal us, love us,
And show to us the way.
