31 Days of Christmas Lyrics, Day 28 (Star of Wonder)

Messiah was worth every mile…

On our journey from Advent to Epiphany, seems appropriate to go to one of my favorites by JJ Heller –

“Through the fields and deserts they came – Messiah was worth every mile”

There were kings of the orient
Bringing gifts to the child
Through the fields and deserts they came
Messiah was worth every mile

Star of wonder, star of light
Star with royal beauty bright
Westward leading, still proceeding
Guide us to thy perfect light

Gold and frankincense, myrrh the perfume
Breathes a life of gathering gloom
Sorrow, sighing, bleeding and dying
Sealed in the stone cold tomb

Star of wonder, star of light
Star with royal beauty bright
Westward leading, still proceeding
Guide us to thy perfect light

Glorious now behold Him arise
King and God and sacrifice
Allelujah, Allelu
Sounds through the earth and the skies

Star of wonder, star of light
Star with royal beauty bright
Westward leading, still proceeding
Guide us to thy perfect light

Through the fields and deserts they came
Messiah was worth every mile
– JJ Heller, David Heller
