Anthems, Children's Music
Keyboard [organ/piano]
Children's Choir, Unison
Suggested Uses(s)

Unison (children's) choir and piano. An arrangement of the tune Sweet Afton (Alexander Hume). Lovely in its simplicity.

Above us in Bethlehem, shining so bright
A star in the eastern sky lights up the night.
More splendid than gold is the message it brings
Its glory and majesty heralds the king.

Lamplight, candlelight, light from afar;
Yet none is as lovely as light from the star.

O night calm and peaceful, O night above all;
O star that is resting above yonder stall.
Give hope to your people and lighten our way;
Shine down upon us and turn night to day.

O lead us to Bethlehem bright morning star;
And then to the manger, from lands near and far.
With shepherds and angels, we'll worship and sing;
And there give our hearts to the King of all Kings.
