Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.@Psalm 119:105

T. P. Burt, in Song Crown, ed­it­ed by Aus­tin Tay­lor et al. (Au­stin, Tex­as: Firm Foun­da­tion Pub­lish­ing, 1912), num­ber 17 (🔊 pdf nwc).

There’s a beautiful city far away,
Happy home just beyond the dark sea;
I can see its golden splendor thro’ the spray,
There’s a light in the window for me.

Refrain

There’s a light in the window for me,
There’s a light in the window for me;
O the word of God doth guide
To that home beyond the tide,
’Tis a light in the window for me.

O the light of that city is the Lord,
There the King in His glory we’ll see;
And the light to guide us there is His own word,
’Tis a light in the window for me.

Refrain

There are angels of glory in that home,
They are waiting and watching for me;
Sinner, come and go with me, no more to roam,
There’s a light in the window for me.

Refrain
