We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

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. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

The day star hath risen

Representative 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]
