Dear Friend of Hymnary,

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from, 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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

The day star hath risen

Full Text

1. The Day-Star hath risen, the night clouds have flown;
No longer in sadness I wander alone;
Its beams in the valley reflected I see;
The Day-Star hath risen—it shineth for me.

It shineth for me, shineth for me;
The Day-Star hath risen,
It shineth for me.

2. The Day-Star hath risen, in beauty sublime,
To cheer and illumine each far distant clime;
The regions in darkness its beauty shall see;
The Day-Star hath risen—it shineth for me. [Refrain]

3. The Day-Star hath risen, it shineth for all;
O’er paths that are lonely its brightness will fall;
O blessèd Redeemer, all honor to Thee,
Thou Day-Star of glory that shinest for me! [Refrain]
