Shine on, O Star!

Verse 1:
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.

Verse 2:
Shine on, O Star of glory,
We lift our eyes to Thee;
Beyond the clouds that gather,
Thy radiant light we see.

Verse 3;
Shine on, O Star unchanging,
And guide our pilgrim way,
Until we see the dawning
Of heav’n’s eternal day.

Verse 4:
And when, with Thy redeem’d ones,
We reach the heav’nly shore,
May we with Thee in glory
Shine on forevermore.

Victoria Stuart and Ira D. Sankey

    1. If you go to the top of my page, you will see a tab marked “Current Hymnal”. I am using the oldest hymnal in my collection, published in 1892. I will try to remember to bring the book up to work tomorrow and scan the page so you will have the tune.
      Although I did not put it in, the refrain has a descant as well that would be nice for your sopranos.
