Representative Text

1 Star of the morning, beam on our way;
Break thro’ the darkness, bring on the day;
Haste thro’ the shades of the lingering night,
Now let thy glory flash out on our sight.

Star of the morning,
Star of the morning,
Break thro’ the darkness,
And bring the glad day.

2 Star of the morning, gleam on our tears;
Scatter the darkness, banish our fears;
Give to our longings the joys thou dost bring;
Give to our rapture our Savior and king. [Refrain]

3 Star of the morning, shine thro’ the gloom;
Gleam thro’ the shadows, shrouding the tomb;
Waken the nations that slumber beneath;
Speedily vanquish the power of death. [Refrain]

4 Bride of Immanuel, cease from thy tears.
Lo! in the daybreak glory appears;
Fast flies the storm cloud, the darkness is past;
Morning is coming with blessings at last. [Refrain]
