Hymn/Song Information

Daystar on high bright harbinger of




Daystar on high, bright harbinger of gladness,
piercing the clouds of ignorance and error,
thou hast dispersed our night of sin and sadness;
death has no terror.
Darkness is past, joy cometh in the morning;
hope springs anew for sinners without number:
Sleepers, awake! a brighter day is dawning;
shake off your slumber.
Alleluia!


Prophets of old spake darkly of this wonder,
psalmist and saints have handed on the story;
now he is risen, bursting bonds asunder,
risen to glory.
Earth's tyrants quail; the mighty make obeisance:
he hath preferred the innocent and lowly:
mercy and truth shine round about his presence:
his name is holy.
Alleluia!


Victor he comes in majesty, revealing
promise of life and liberty to mortals;
heaven and earth, with hymns of triumph pealing,
throw wide their portals.
Praise him, ye nations, hearts and voices blending:
raise high your song; the Conqueror advances:
praise him with cymbals, lute and harp attending,
praise him with dances.
Alleluia!


Hail him the Monarch, Ruler of creation;
prince and powers, bow your heads before him,
this is the Lord, the God of our salvation;
let us adore him.
Lord God of hosts, great Deity supernal,
be thou our strength, by thee our steps be guided,
Father and Son and Spirit co-eternal,
One undivided.
Alleluia!
