Lyrics

Shine forth, O Sun of boundless love,
The night within our souls remove;
Be Thou our light, be Thou our guide,
O’er ev’ry thought and step preside.

The light of truth, O Lord of might,
That we may know and choose Thy way;
Plant holy fear within each heart,
That we may ne’er from Thee depart.
