Shine on, O Star of beauty,
Thou Christ enthroned above;
Reflecting in Thy brightness,
Our Father’s look of love.

Refrain

Shine on, shine on, shine on,
Thou bright and beautiful Star, shine on.
Shine on, shine on, shine on,
Thou bright and beautiful Star, shine on.

Shine on, O Star of glory,
We lift our eyes to Thee;
Beyond the clouds that gather,
Thy radiant light we see.

Refrain

Shine on, O Star unchanging,
And guide our pilgrim way,
Until we see the dawning
Of Heav’n’s eternal day.

Refrain

And when, with Thy redeemed ones,
We reach the heav’nly shore,
May we with Thee in glory
Shine on forevermore.

Refrain
