11956. The Bright And Morning Star

1 The bright and morning star
Is shedding forth its light,
As God’s majestic glory,
To guide His children right.
O, may we all receive it,
In faith—in joy—in love—
Until it guides us safely
Into the realms above.

Refrain:
It will guide us safely,
Tho’ the way be dreary;
It will guide us safely
To eternal life.
It will guide us safely
Into bliss and glory;
It will guide us safely
If we trust its light.

2 The bright and morning star
Is shining forth for all
Who love to see its beauty,
And heed its gracious call.
"Come unto Me," says Jesus,
"And I will give you rest,
For I am meek and lowly";
O be forever blest. [Refrain]

3 The bright and morning star
Illuminates the way
That leads from earth to Heaven;
It never leads astray.
For if we only travel
Where’er its light doth show,
The morning star will guide us
Away from every foe. [Refrain]

4 Of all the stars that shine
There’s none so great as this,
Because it shines forever,
And gives eternal bliss.
To all who trust its merit,
It never will grow dim,
It is the blessèd Jesus,
Who cleanses from all sin. [Refrain]
