Merry Christmas -- The Star Carol



 
 
Merry Christmas!  I would like to bring to you the words of the song "The Star Carol" by Alfred Burt .
 
 
"Long years ago on a deep winter night,
High in the heavens a star shone bright,
While in a manger a wee baby lay,
Sweetly asleep on a bed of hay.
 
 
 
Jesus, the Lord was that Baby so small,
Laid down to sleep in a humble stall;
Then came the star and it stood overhead,
Shedding its light 'round His little bed.




Dear baby Jesus, how tiny Thou art,
I'll make a place for Thee in my heart,
And when the stars in the heavens I see,
Ever and always I'll think of Thee."
 
 
Merry Christmas!!
