476. The Light of the World Is Jesus

1 The whole world was lost in the darkness of sin;
the light of the world is Jesus;
like sunshine at noonday his glory shone in,
the Light of the world is Jesus.

Refrain:
Come to the Light, 'tis shining for thee;
sweetly the Light has dawned upon me;
once I was blind, but now I can see;
the light of the world is Jesus.

2 No darkness have we who in Jesus abide,
the light of the world is Jesus;
we walk in the Light when we follow our Guide,
the light of the world is Jesus. [Refrain]

3 Ye dwellers in darkness with sin-blinded eyes,
the light of the world is Jesus;
go, wash at his bidding, and light will arise,
the light of the world is Jesus. [Refrain]

4 No need of the sunlight in heaven, we're told,
the light of the world is Jesus;
the Lamb is the Light in the City of Gold,
the light of the world is Jesus. [Refrain]
