1. There was starlight on the hillside,And one star bent very lowTill it passed above a stableOn that night so long ago.
2. There were shepherds on the hillsideOn that night in Bethlehem.Heav’nly hosts appeared, proclaimingJoyous tidings unto them.
3. There was Jesus in the manger,Born that night in Bethlehem.And the shepherds left the hillside,And they came to worship him.
