1 Jesus Christ, the stars of night
Faintly shine thro' evening light,
While before Thine altar we
Lift our thankful hearts to Thee.

2 On the distant hills the day
Sinks in deep'ning shade away;
But Thy presence ever near,
Shields us in the hour of fear.

3 As the evening dews descend,
Be Thou with us, heavenly Friend!
Let Thy Spirit's whispering,
Peace to all our spirits bring!

4 Son of God! Thy glorious praise
From our trembling lips we raise,
On Thy throne of light on high,
Hear and heed the contrite sigh!

5 Savior! Though our words are weak,
'Tis Thy glory now we seek!
May our faint example shine,
Teach us that its light is Thine!

6 Jesus Christ! the stars of night
Brightly shine with joyous light;
While in adoration we,
Lord of Love, look up to Thee!
