There was starlight on the hillside,
And one star bent very low
Till it passed above a stable
On that night so long ago.
There was music on the hillside
On that night in Bethlehem.
Heavenly hosts appeared to shepherds
And the singing wakened them.
There was Jesus in the manger,
Born that night in Bethlehem,
And the shepherds left the hillside
And they came to worship him.
