Lyrics

Christmas Trumpets
Text: Louis F. Benson, 1899, alt.
Music: Austin C. Lovelace

A king might miss the guiding star,
A wiseman’s foot might stumble;
For Bethlehem is very far
From all except the humble.

Some pilgrims seek a hallowed shrine;
Some soldiers march to danger;
Some travelers seek an inn’s bright sign:
“The baby in the manger.”

There is no palace in that place,
Nor any seat of learning;
No hilltop vision of God’s face,
No altar candles burning.

But those who come to Bethlehem
Shall hear the oxen lowing;
And when they humbly kneel with them,
May hear God’s trumpets blowing:

From far away on Christmas day,
May hear God’s trumpets blowing.

From the Song Cycle, “A Christmas Blessing”
