1. The promise of the Father to His
people in despair;
There would come a Savior in answer to their prayers.
Through poet bards and prophets, down from His throne above;
The word of hope was given, bound up in cords of love.
Chorus: Look up! Look up! A star
There in the eastern sky.
Look up! Look up! A star is shining,
For all the world to see.
2. Through tests of time they labored
with hope to drive them on;
Still clinging to the promise, the special Child would come.
When time had reached its fulness, God sent His only Son;
Wrapped up in grace and mercy, He was the promised One!
3. The wise men in their musings
were first to see the star;
Such men who seek the Savior would travel very far.
It led them to Judea, the town of Bethlehem;
There they would find the Baby, the King, the Great I AM.
