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!
