A Star Doth Bedizen Lyrics
1. A Star doth bedizen
The Westron horizon,
As Balaam the seer did foresay;
And, drawn by the light of this meteor bright,
Three Easterlings haste away.
2. Through fair or foul weather
They journey together
O'er mountain and valley, nor stay
Until they had sped and arrived at the shed,
Wherein the babe Jesu lay.
3. They fall and adore Him
In worship afore Him
That heavenly Child, that was born
For us, as for them, e'en at Little Bethlem,
Of Mary on Christmas-morn.
