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.
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]Source: Carols of Hope: a compilation of select sacred songs for use in Sunday schools, praise and young people's services #94
