1 A light on my pathway to banish the night,
A beacon to guide me and lead me aright,
A radiant sunbeam that shineth so bright,
That’s what His love means to me.

Refrain:
That’s what His love means to me,
That’s what His love means to me;
A light on my way, my comfort and stay,
That’s what His love means to me.

2 A shelter from tempest and storm-winds that blow,
A safe, sure retreat wheresoever I go,
The source of all comfort that here I may know,
That’s what His love means to me. [Refrain]

3 A wellspring of water ‘mid desert and heat,
A rest from my labor, a joy full, complete;
A peace calm and holy, a fellowship sweet,
That’s what His love means to me. [Refrain]
