1 My Guiding Star shines for me into night,
And oh, the light!
And oh, the light!
Once deepest darkness veiled the way I went,
My Star was sent,
My Star was sent,
And now, e’en in the gloaming as I go,
I see His glow,
I see His glow,
And now, e’en in the gloaming as I go,
I see His glow,
I see His glow.

2 My Guiding Star shines for me into day,
To light the way,
To light the way,
For when the world so fills my weary eyes,
And His dear skies,
And His dear skies,
So far away, sweet star I need Thy ray,
To light my day,
To light my day,
So far away, sweet star I need Thy ray,
To light my day,
To light my day.

3 And when at last the evening time shall spread,
About my bed;
About my bed;
When murmured low the partings, and the heart,
Forgets its part,
Forgets its part,
Then, out the dawning new, beyond, afar,
Shall shine my Star,
Shall shine my Star,
Then, out the dawning new, beyond, afar,
Shall shine my Star,
Shall shine my Star.
