Though shadows may cover the face of the day,
Though steep be the path that you climb,
You never need stumble, you never need stray,
There’s light for a step at a time.

Refrain

There’s light for each step of the way,
There’s light for a step at a time;
You never need stumble, you never need stray,
There’s light for a step at a time.

Though mists on the edge of the marshlands lie low,
Though narrow the path that is sure;
Still light for a step will be yours if you go
With tread that is firm and secure.

Refrain

When into the valley the pathway shall lead,
Where darkly the Death-River rolls,
There still shall be light in your uttermost need,
To guide to the mansion of souls.

Refrain
