With Wondering Awe

Lyrics

  1. 1. With wond’ring awe the wisemen saw
    The star in heaven springing,
    And with delight, in peaceful night,
    They heard the angels singing:
  2. Hosanna, hosanna, hosanna to his name!
  3. 2. By light of star they traveled far
    To seek the lowly manger,
    A humble bed wherein was laid
    The wondrous little Stranger.
  4. Hosanna, hosanna, hosanna to his name!
  5. 3. And still is found, the world around,
    The old and hallowed story,
    And still is sung in ev’ry tongue
    The angels’ song of glory:
  6. Hosanna, hosanna, hosanna to his name!
  7. 4. The heav’nly star its rays afar
    On ev’ry land is throwing,
    And shall not cease till holy peace
    In all the earth is growing.
  8. Hosanna, hosanna, hosanna to his name!
