Twas a Star (Petersen)


Twas a Star (Petersen)

Music for Choirs, Submitted Music (1992-1997)

‘Twas a star whose lonely light

Pierced the dark and silent night

That shone upon a child so dear

While angels sang for all the world to hear:

“Christ is born in Bethlehem!”

 

May we yet behold the star that brought wise men from afar

To bring Him gifts, and raise a joyful voice?

What will we bring Him?

How will we rejoice that Christ was born in Bethlehem?

What will we bring Him?

How will we rejoice that

Christ was born in Bethlehem?
