    With Wondering Awe

    Brightly

    1. With wond’ring awe the wisemen saw

    The star in heaven springing,

    And with delight, in peaceful night,

    They heard the angels singing:

    [Chorus]

    Hosanna, hosanna, hosanna to his name!

    2. By light of star they traveled far

    To seek the lowly manger,

    A humble bed wherein was laid

    The wondrous little Stranger.

    [Chorus]

    Hosanna, hosanna, hosanna to his name!

    3. And still is found, the world around,

    The old and hallowed story,

    And still is sung in ev’ry tongue

    The angels’ song of glory:

    [Chorus]

    Hosanna, hosanna, hosanna to his name!

    4. The heav’nly star its rays afar

    On ev’ry land is throwing,

    And shall not cease till holy peace

    In all the earth is growing.

    [Chorus]

    Hosanna, hosanna, hosanna to his name!
