Hymnary Friends,

We don't often ask for money.

But, before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going.

You are one of more than half a million people who come here every month: worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and many more. Here at Hymnary.org, you have free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure site.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team,

Full Text

1. Star of the morning, beautiful, bright,
Shining with lustre by day and by night;
Lighting my pathway, oh, what delight!
Guiding my footsteps always aright.

Chorus:
Shine on! shine on! Jesus my star,
Guiding me safely thro' this world of strife;
Shine on, shine on! Filled with delight
I hail thy brightness, Star of my life.

2. Light in the darkness, beautiful star,
Flashing thy rays where the deep shadows are,
Comfort in sorrow and hope in despair,
Balm to my soul, oh gem, thou art rare. [Chorus]

3. Star of salvation, brilliantly shine,
Ever around me my life to enshrine;
Lead, and I'll follow and ever be thine,
Jesus my safety, now thou art mine. [Chorus]
