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]
