We Shall Shine as the Stars ~ Hymn

 

We Shall Shine as the Stars

We may tarry awhile here as strangers,
Unnoticed by those who pass by;
But the Savior will crown us in glory,
To shine as the stars in the sky.

Refrain

We shall shine as the stars of the morning,
With Jesus the Crucified One;
We shall rise to be like Him forever,
Eternally shine as the sun.

We may never be rich in earth’s treasures,
Nor rise on the ladder of fame;
But the saints will at last be rewarded,
Made rich in Immanuel’s Name.

Refrain

We may live in a tent or a cottage,
And die in seclusion alone;
But the Father Who seeth in secret,
Remembers each one of His own.

Refrain

Words: Judson W. Van DeVenter, 1899.

  1. I do not know the tune to this hymn, but like so many hymns, the words by themselves are beautiful. We may tarry…yes, that really is all that life on earth is compared to eternity. Good to keep that perspective.
