Representative Text

1 Shine in thy beauty, O wondrous Star,
Bright on thy radiant way;
Humbly we follow thy leading far,
Be thou our beacon alway.

Shine on! shine on!
O star of the morning, shine on! shine on!
Shine on! shine on!
The wide world adorning, shine on! shine on!
Each soul that in gladness thy praise doth sing
Securely and peacefully thou wilt bring,
Where dwelleth in glory our heav’nly king;
Shine on! shine on! shine on!

2 Down thro’ the ages, thou vivid spark,
Brightly thy glory doth shine,
Filling with promise earth’s corners dark,
Pointing to God’s love divine. [Refrain]

3 Brighter thy beams as the years roll by,
Greater their power to bless,
Fadeless thy place in creation’s sky,
Daystar of His righteousness. [Refrain]
