11894. Thou Lord Of Light, Across The Years

1 Thou Lord of light, across the years
Thy shining path of love we see;
Bright glows amid our joys and fears
The ardor of our faith in Thee.

2 We thank Thee for these years of power,
For stalwart souls, for gentle life,
For men transformed to meet the hour
Of blasting wrong, of surging strife.

3 For men who gird the world with flame,
Who count for Thee all things but loss,
Who challenge nations in Thy name
To hear the story of Thy cross.

4 Yet, beating thro’ our gratitude,
We feel the pulse of coming days;
Thy truth must stand where it has stood;
New darkness waits its deathless rays.

High courage grant, the outlook broad,
The strength of joy, the zest for right,
The faith that burns, the sense of God,
Thy fellowship, Thou Lord of light.
