The Lord will bring me into the light, and I will see His righteousness.@Micah 7:9

May Cornwell, 1895.

Hampton H. Sewell (🔊 pdf nwc).

Lift me higher, blessèd Master,
Higher still into the light,
Up above the fearful shadows
Of earth’s sin and gloom and night.


Higher, Savior,
Nearer to Thy piercèd side,
With Thy loving arms about me,
Let me evermore abide.

Hold me closer, blessèd Master,
In a firm and fond embrace;
Let no shadows pass between me
And the glory of Thy face.


Make me purer, blessèd Master,
Pure in purpose, deed and heart;
May the purity of Jesus
Of my own life form a part.
