Star of my night

Representative Text

1 Rest of the weary, and hope of the soul,
Hearts that are broken by thee are made whole;
Thou art my refuge, my trust is in thee;
Pitying Jesus, compassionate me.

Chorus:
Star of my night, bright star of my night,
Shine on me ever, and guide me aright,
Star of my night, bright star of my night,
Shine on me ever, and guide me aright.

2 Give me, O Savior, the blessing of peace;
I am in bondage, my spirit release;
Cleanse me and make me all spotless within;
Free me forever from fetters of sin. [Chorus]

3 When the dark valley of death I have passed,
O then receive me and guide me at last,
Into the beautiful home of the blest,
Glorious kingdom of heavenly rest. [Chorus]
