1. Oh, shine, my Redeemer
    My Light o'er the way!
For faint is the pilgrim,
    And lone, and astray:
No ray o'er the desert,
    No light from afar;
Shine forth in thy glory,
    Bright Bethlehem's star!

2. Long blazed the fierce sunlight,
    And toiling I went;
Now night falleth, chilling,
    My courage is spent:
These shadows of darkness,
    How fearful they are!
Shine forth in thy glory,
    Bright Bethlehem's Star.

3. 'T is said and the midnight
    Is breaking away!
See, soft, through the shadows,
    Pours mercy's mild ray!
Now smileth the pilgrim
    To greet thee from far;
All hail to thy glory,
    Bright Bethlehem's Star!
