The Martins did sing it. Here are the lyrics:

O'er mountains and valleys
It led them each night
As star of most radiant light
The wise men rejoiced
As they journeyed afar
To behold such a beautiful star

When they saw the star
They rejoiced with great joy
When they saw the star
They rejoiced

When they saw the star
They rejoiced with great joy
They rejoiced with
Exceeding great joy

When they saw the star
They rejoiced with great joy
When they saw the star
They rejoiced

When they saw the star
They rejoiced with great joy
They rejoiced with
Exceeding great joy

Others saw the star
But they followed it not
To them it would come
And would pass

The wise men kept trusting
With all of their hearts
That the star would find
The baby at last

When they saw the star
They rejoiced with great joy
When they saw the star
They rejoiced

When they saw the star
They rejoiced with great joy
They rejoiced with
Exceeding great joy

When they saw the star
They rejoiced with great joy
When they saw the star
They rejoiced

When they saw the star
They rejoiced with great joy
They rejoiced with
Exceeding great joy

When they saw the star
They rejoiced with great joy
When they saw the star
They rejoiced

When they saw the star
They rejoiced with great joy
They rejoiced with
Exceeding great joy

Great joy
They rejoiced with
Exceeding great joy

God Bless!

Some one told me it was a old Lanny Wolfe song. I don't have the music for it, but would love to have the sheet music if anyone knows where I could buy it.

I remember this was a song we played in orchestra too. The "One bright day, I saw in rich array" part was a march. Does anyone remember the name of that?

The first lyrics version posted is the arrangement sung at the Disney Candlelight Concerts - a fantastic mashup of "Rejoice with Exceeding Great Joy," "We Three Kings" and the old French Carol, the March of the Kings ("One bright day," which I first learned as "Three great Kings came from the Orient.") A bit of the First Nowell thrown in too, I think. :) I've seen a PDF of the Candlelight edition online, but I'm afraid I don't know where to find the original "Rejoice"; I hope this helps clarify the lyrics question, though.
