Brightest and Best

Brightest and Best

Words:  Reginald Heber (1811)

Music:  American folk hymn

 

Where is the newborn king of the Jews? We saw his star as it rose, and we have come to worship him.”  (Matthew 2:2 NLT)

 

Brightest and best of the stars of the morning,

Dawn on our darkness, and lend us thine aid;

Star of the East, the horizon adorning,

Guide where our infant Redeemer is laid

 

Cold on his cradle the dewdrops are shining,

Low lies his head with the beasts of the stall;

Angels adore Him in slumber reclining,

Maker and Monarch and Savior of all.

 

Shall we then yield Him, in costly devotion,

Odors of Edom, and offerings divine,

Gems of the mountain and pearls of the ocean,

Myrrh from the forest, or gold from the mine?

 

Vainly we offer each ample oblation,

Vainly with gifts would His favor secure;

Richer by far is the heart’s adoration,

Dearer to God are the prayers of the poor.
