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.

Refrain

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

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

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
