There Came a Star!

There came a Star, out from on High,
A Rising Star at last;
We’ve seen His glory, raised to die,
O Lord, what awesome cost!

There came a Star, from Jacob’s seed,
A King to rule in grace;
To conquer all and meet the need,
Of God’s own chosen race.

There came a Star, from Israel’s God,
A Son to give us peace;
To lift from us God’s angry rod,
To suffer on the cross.

There came a Star, a Warrior Lord,
To overcome the foe;
Break down the power of Satan’s hold,
He came to let us go.

There came a Star, out from on High,
From death the Son arose;
It could not hold, He lives for aye,
Hallelujah! He arose!

(Tune: Amazing grace; Stracathro; CM)
