The English lyrics have five stanzas, although only the first is widely known. The English lyrics were first published as a poem with the title "The Star" by sisters Ann and Jane Taylor (1783–1824) in Rhymes for the Nursery in London in 1806. The poem was written by Jane. It was the theme of the Andante of Haydn's 94 ("Surprise") Symphony first performed in 1792.
