And the star they had seen in the east guided them to Bethlehem. It went ahead of them and stopped over the place where the child was (Matthew 2:9; NLT).
1. One star, so bright;
One birth, one light.
2. One Son, so dear;
One truth, so clear.
3. One path, so short;
One gospel taught.
4. One Man, so brave;
One Lord, our slave.
5. One night, so dark;
One fear, so stark.
6. One hope, so small;
One cup of gall.
7. One life, so hard;
One flesh, so scarred.
8. One cross, so high;
One final cry.
9. One tomb, so cold;
One flash of gold!
10. One God, so good;
One path of love.
