Representative Text

1 Christian, let your burning light
Shine on all with luster bright;
Let your words and deeds be pure,
All for Christ you must endure.

Christian, let your light shine,
All along your way;
You may guide a wanderer
To eternal day;
You may save from endless night,
If you let your lamp burn bright.

2 As you journey here below,
Shed a ray where’er you go;
Find in this your pure delight,
Let your light shine clear and bright. [Refrain]

3 That your light may guide you thro’,
Brightly let it shine anew;
Keep up courage—never fail,
Till you’re safe within the veil. [Refrain]
