From the east - ern moun- tains, Press-ing on, they come,

Wise men in their wis - dom,
To his hum - ble home ;
Stirred by deep de - vo - tion,
Hast - ing from a - far,
Ev - er journeying on -ward,
Guid-ed by a star.
 Light of life that shin - eth,
 Ere the worlds be - gan,
 Draw though near and light - en
 Ev - ry heart of man.'

2.
Thou who in a man - ger

Once hast low - ly lain,
Who dost now in glo - ry
O'er all king - doms reign,
Gath er in the peo - pie,
Who in lands a - far
Ne'er have seen the brightness
Of thy guiding star.
 Light of life that shin - eth, &c.

3.
Gath-er in the out - casts,

All who've gone a - stray ;
Throw thy ra-diance o'er them ,
Guide them on their way;
Those who nev - er knew thee,
Those who've wandered far,
Guide them by the bright-ness
Of thy guiding star.
 Light of life that shin - eth, &c.

Un - til ev - ery na - tion,

Wheth-er bond or free,
'Neath thy star - lit ban - ner,
Je - sus, fol - lows thee
O'er the dis - tant moun-tains
To that heavenly home,
Where nor sin nor sor - row
Ev -er-more shall come.
 Light of life that shin - eth,&c.
