Jacob's star is risen at last
(Thomas Kelly/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)

Jacob's star is risen at last.

"There shall come a star out of Jacob." (Numbers 24,17)

1. Jacob's star is ris'n at last,
  brighter than the brightest sun:
darkness is for ever past,
  and the joyful day begun.

2. Sing aloud, the cause is great;
  sing, ye heav'ns, and sing, thou earth:
still the joyful theme repeat;
  joyful theme, Emmanuel's birth.

3. This is Jacob's promised star,
  giving light to all around;
shining clear, and seen afar,
  seen to earth's remotest bounds.

4. Sing the Infant, virgin-born,
  he a King, a King by birth;
though the mark of human scorn,
  heir of all in heav'n and earth.

5. Now, ye saints, dry up your tears;
  see the day is come at last:
Jacob's promised star appears,
  darkness is for ever past.

Thomas Kelly, Hymns on various passages of Scripture, ca. 1853, Hymn 2.
