1 Morning Star, your cheering light
can dispel the gloom of night.
Morning Star, your cheering light
can dispel the gloom of night;
Jesulein, come and shine;
come and shine, Jesulein,
in this darksome heart of mine.

2 Your most radiant, glorious light
far exceeds the sun so bright;
your most radiant, glorious light
far exceeds the sun so bright;
you shall be, Jesulein,
Jesulein, you shall be
as a thousand suns to me.

3 Your abundant, joyful ray -
we will follow in its way;
your abundant, joyful ray -
we will follow in its way;
fairest star, near and far;
near and far, fairest star,
Christ as God we now revere.

4 Shining soul, true light divine,
come without delay an shine;
shining soul, true light divine,
come without delay and shine;
come and shine, Jesulein,
Jesulein, come and shine
in my heart, Lord Jesus, shine.
