Christ My Song - 721
O thou! who by a star didst guide
(John Mason Neale/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)
O thou! who by a star didst guide.
2. although by stars thou dost not lead
thy servants now below,
thy Holy Spirit, when they need,
will show them how to go.
3. As yet we know thee but in part;
but still we trust thy word,
that blessed are the pure in heart,
for they shall see the Lord.
4. O Saviour! give us, then, thy grace,
to make us pure in heart;
that we may see thee face to face,
hereafter, as thou art.
John Mason Neale in: Schaff, Philip: Christ in Song, 1869, 125-126.
