Representative Text

1 Along a dark and gloomy path

2 My darkness now is passed away,

And peace and comfort ever stay,
Since Christ is my perfect light. [Refrain]

3 O Jesus, to my heart so sweet,
Thy Word’s a light unto my feet;

I walk in the precious light. [Refrain]

4 All glory to my Savior’s name,
To do Thy will my highest aim;
Thy favor’s more than earthly fame,
Thy smile is my constant light. [Refrain]
