51 Christians, Lo, the Star Appeareth
(BEECHER )

1.
Christians, lo, the star appeareth;
Lo, 'tis yet Messiah's day;
Still with tribute treasure laden
Come the wise men on their way.
Where a life is spent in service,
Walking where the Master trod,
There is scattered myrrh most fragrant
For the blessed Christ of God.
2.Whoso bears his brother's burden,
Whoso shares another's woe,
Brings his frankincense to Jesus
With the men of long ago.
When we soothe earth's weary children,
Tending best the least of them,
'Tis the Lord himself we worship
Bringing gold to Bethlehem.
