From the Eastern Mountains

From the eastern mountains
Pressing on they come
Wisemen in their wisdom
To His humble home
Stirred by deep devotion
hasting form afar
Ever journ'ing onward
Guided by a star

There the Lord and Savior
Meek and lowly lay
Wondrous light that led them
Onward on their way
Ever now to lighten
Nations from afar
As they journey homeward
By that guiding star

Thou who in a manger

Once hast lowly lain,
Who dost now in glory
O'er all kingdoms reign,
Gather in the heathen
Who in lands afar
Ne'er have seen the brightness
Of Thy guiding star.

Gather in the outcasts,
All who have astray,
Throw Thy radiance o'er them,
Guide them on their way,
Those who never knew Thee,
Those who have wandered far,
Guide them by the brightness
Of Thy guiding star.

Onward through the darkness
Of the lonely night,
Shining still before, them
With Thy kindly light,
Guide them, Jew and Gentile,
Homeward from afar,
Young and old together,
By Thy guiding star.
