Star of My Heart

 Star of my heart, I follow from afar.
Sweet Love on high, lead on where shepherds are, Where Time is not, and only dreamers are.
Star from of old, the Magi-Kings are dead And a foolish Saxon seeks the manger-bed.
O lead me to Jehovah's child Across this dreamland lone and wild, Then will I speak this prayer unsaid, And kiss his little haloed head — "My star and I, we love thee, little child.
" Except the Christ be born again to-night In dreams of all men, saints and sons of shame, The world will never see his kingdom bright.
Stars of all hearts, lead onward thro' the night Past death-black deserts, doubts without a name, Past hills of pain and mountains of new sin To that far sky where mystic births begin, Where dreaming ears the angel-song shall win.
Our Christmas shall be rare at dawning there, And each shall find his brother fair, Like a little child within: All hearts of the earth shall find new birth And wake, no more to sin.
