There is a light, a blessèd light,
That comes from God above;
And in the face of Christ the Lord,
Reflects the Father’s love.


Let us walk in the light,
Ever walk in the light of God;
Let us walk in the light,
Ever walk in the light of God.

There is a light, a glorious light,
That falls upon our way;
And brighter shineth as we go,
Till lost in perfect day.


There is a light, a holy light,
By which we now behold
The jasper walls, the pearly gates
And streets of shining gold.


O blessèd, blessèd, holy light,
To all so freely giv’n;
Shine forth, shine forth, O light of life,
And guide us safe to Heav’n.
