    Behold, what star is this
    How beautiful and bright!
    A guide it is to the Gentiles
    To the king of glory

    Verse 2
    Behold, the wisemen all
    Came from the Orient,
    They came and made their obeisance
    To Jesus Christ the Blest

    Verse 3
    May Thou light of the soul
    Do illumine our land,
    Show the way and how to follow
    Our Lord Emmanuel

    Verse 4
    May ancestral spirits
    And their groves and green trees
    That are worshipped in heathen lands
    Give way to Jesus Christ

    May high priests of the groves
    All over Africa
    Become true wisemen indeed, to
    Receive Jesus' offering

    Verse 6
    Father and Creator
    Who revealed Jesus to
    The heathens of those early days
    Reveal Him to us too
