LYRICS

1. How brightly beams the Morning Star!
What sudden radiance from afar
Doth glad us with its shining,
Brightness of God that breaks our night
And fills the darken’d souls with light
Who long for truth were pining!
Thy Word, Jesu, only feeds us,
Rightly leads us, Life bestowing;
Praise, oh praise such love o’erflowing.

2. Though circled by the hosts on high,
He deigned to cast a pitying eye
Upon his helpless creature;
The whole creation’s Head and Lord,
By highest seraphim adored,
Assumed our very nature;
Jesus, grant us, Through thy merit,
To inherit Thy salvation;
Hear, O hear our supplication.

3. O righteous branch, O Jesse’s rod,
Thou Son of Man and Son of God,

For whom all heaven rejoices
O Holy Rose of Bethlehem
Who sprang from God’s most tender stem
To Thee we lift our voices.
Sing ye heavens;
Tell the story of His glory
’Til His praises flood with light earth’s darkest places.
How brightly beams the Morning Star!
