Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for 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. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

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

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

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

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]
