Beautiful Star of Bethlehem


 Oh, Beautiful Star of Bethlehem,
Shining afar thru shadows dim,
Giving a light for those who long have gone, have gone;
And Guiding the Wise Men on their way
Unto the place where Jesus lay,
Beautiful Star of Bethlehem, shine on.

Below is my favorite song at Christmas, Beautiful Star of Bethlehem by Patti Loveless.

Thank You, and thank you for your priceless friendship!

I haven't heard this song before, the words are beautiful. And speaking of beautiful, your star is stunning. I like the way you photographed it with the reflection of other pieces in the background.

This is a beautiful star and post Sandra. And your photos of it are so gorgeous! I love the background being all sparkly with the lights and glass.
I've never heard this song before. It's really pretty.

I have listened to several ones sing this song, and just love it. Your star is so pretty! We have not had a tree topper, though we look for the perfect one every year. The other day, I happened to see a pretty silver star in Cracker Barrel, it was half price, $2.50. We bought it and have it on top of our tree, and it looks a bit like yours!!

Lovely ornamental star.

I was putting up my tree, didn't use all the ornament, and could find my star. I knew I had a star. Then I found it, it was a plain "chrome" star which I stuck a chopstick so it can stand on top of the tree.

Hope you two have a fabulous Christmas.

Your star is gorgeous and I love that song.

Oh I wish I wasn't reading from my laptop today. I can never hear on this thing. That star is beautiful. Is that a tree topper? I had an angel on the top of my tree for years and went out and bought a star this year to replace her. I just got tired of the same thing

This was my late mom's favorite song. Thank you for sharing. Merry Christmas.

I really like this version of Beautiful Star of Bethlehem, and it is currently on my iPod. Your Star, and the pictures of it, are definitely beautiful.

I hope you and your family have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy and Healthy New Year.
