Shine Around Me

Representative Text

1 Come, O come, Thou blessed Spirit
Guide me in the paths of right;
Just and holy make me ever,
Shine around me with Thy light.

Shine around me, Holy Spirit,
Shine, O blessed Light;
Shine around me, Holy Spirit,
Make my pathway ever bright.

2 Make me faithful in Thy service,
Leading, by some winning word,
Souls that far from Thee have wandered,
To the highway of the Lord. [Refrain]

3 Help me labor on with patience,
Let my life reflect Thy light;
Till my journey here is ended,
And my faith is lost in sight. [Refrain]
