1 Are you walking in sin and in darkness?
Is your heart shadowed o’er as the night?
Throw its portals wide open t’ward heaven
And its shining and beautiful light.
Let the sunlight of heav’n shine in,
Let the sunlight of heav’n shine in;
It will gladden and cheer, fruits of love will appear,
Let the beautiful sunlight shine in.
2 You are living too far from the Saviour,
And your life loses half its delight;
You must live your life nearer t heaven,
And its shining and beautiful light. [Refrain]
3 Only souls that are free from defilement,
And in Jesus renewed and made white,
Walk beneath the pavilion of heaven,
In its shining and beautiful light. [Refrain]
