Henry Kirke White, 1785-1806
When, marshaled on the nightly plain,|
The glittering hosts bestud the sky,
One star alone of all the train
Can fix the sinner's wandering eye.
2. Hark! hark! to God the chorus breaks,
3. Once on the raging seas I rode,
4. Deep horror then my vitals froze,|
Death struck, I ceased the tide to stem,
When suddenly a star arose,
It was the Star of Bethlehem.
5. It was my guide, my light, my all;
6. Now safely, moored, my perils o'er
