Hymn/Song Information

We lift our hearts to Thee O Day Star




We lift our hearts to Thee,
O Day Star from on high!
The sun itself is but Thy shade,
Yet cheers both earth and sky.


O let Thine orient beams
The night of sin disperse,
The mists of error and of vice
Which shade the universe.


How beauteous nature now:
How dark and sad before!
With joy we view the pleasing change,
And nature’s God adore.


O may no gloomy crime
Pollute the rising day;
Or Jesus’ blood, like evening dew,
Wash all the stains away.


May we this life improve,
To mourn for errors past;
And live this short, revolving day
As if it were our last.


To God—the Father, Son,
And Spirit—One in Three,
Be glory; as it was, is now,
And shall forever be.


---Alternative verses---


We lift our hearts to Thee,
Thou Day Star from on high!
The sun itself is but Thy shade,
Yet cheers both earth and sky.


Oh let thy rising beams 
Dispel the shades of night; 
And let the glories of thy love 
Come like the morning light.
 

O let Thy orient beams
The night of sin disperse,
The mists of error and of vice
Which shade the universe.
