1. Jesus is our Morning Star,
Brightly gleaming from afar;
He is sent to guide the way
From the darkness into day,
And His dying love alone
Can for all our sins atone,

Chorus,
The bright and Morning Star!
The bright and Morning Star!
Jesus is our Morning Star,
Our bright and Morning Star!

2. Star of morning fair and bright,
Triumphing o'er shades of night!
Christian, cast on Him Thy care,
Lo! thy Morning Star is there!
Light to guide us day by day,
Light unfailing all the way. Chorus

3. Star of hope to cheer us on,
Till our journeyings are done;
Star above all others bright,
Heav'n rejoices in His light;
Star of peace and joy and love,
Shining o'er us from above. Chorus
