TWC "Christmas Around the World"

"De Tierra Lejana Venimos" - Translation

1 From a distant home the Savior we come seeking,
using as our guide the star so brightly beaming.

Lovely eastern star that tells us of God's morning,
heaven's wondrous light, O never cease thy shining!
Glory in the highest to the Son of Heaven,
and upon the earth be peace and love to all.

2 Glowing gold I bring the new-born babe so holy,
token of his power to reign above in glory. [Refrain]

3 Frankincense I bring the child of God's own choosing,
token of our prayers to heaven ever rising. [Refrain]

4 Bitter myrrh have I to give the infant Jesus,
token of the pain that he will bear to save us. [Refrain]
