Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Who Will Shine as the Stars?

Representative Text

1 As the pure glowing sky on a clear summer day,
When sweet fragrance is filling the air,
Shall the wise brightly shine in that land far away
As the firmament cloudless and fair.

They shall shine as the stars,
In that land of delight over there;
In that home of the blest,
Where no foe can molest,
Let me fly to my rest over there.

2 They that turn many souls unto righteousness here,
Who are toiling by day and by night,
Soon will shine as the stars evermore over there,
And shall reap their reward with delight. [Refrain]

3 As we part here on earth with our loved ones at home,
Weeping eyes, aching hearts, though we leave,
For the Master we’ll work ere the long night shall come,
Then a crown from His hand we’ll receive. [Refrain]
