Author: Mrs. Ormiston Chant, 1848 Hymnal: Methodist Hymn and Tune Book #114b (1917) Hymnal Title: Methodist Hymn and Tune Book Lyrics: 1 Light of the world, faint were our weary feet
With wandering far;
But Thou didst come our lonely hearts to greet,
O Morning Star;
And Thou didst bid us lift our gaze on high,
To see the glory of the glowing sky.
2 In days long past we missed our homeward way;
We could not see;
Blind were our eyes, our feet were bound to stray;
How blind to Thee!
But Thou didst pity, Lord, our gloomy plight;
And Thou didst touch our eyes, and give them sight.
3 Now hallelujahs rise along the road
Our glad feet tread;
Thy love hath shared our sorrow's heavy load;
There's light o'erhead:
Glory to Thee whose love hath led us on,
Glory for all the great things Thou hast done.
4 Where is death's sting, where, grave, thy victory,
Where all the pain,
Now that thy King the veil that hung o'er thee
Hath rent in twain?
Light of the world, we hear Thee bid us come
To light and love in Thine eternal home. Topics: Christ Morning Star; The Godhead The Son; Morning Star; Star Morning; Jesus (See also Christ) Light of the World; Jesus (See also Christ) Morning Star Tune Title: LUX BEATA
