1 Easter light is shining o’er the world today,
All the gloom dispelling with a golden ray.
Does the life of Jesus now illume your heart?
Give the light to others, let them share a part.
Give the light to others, to others, to others,
Who now in darkness dwell;
Give the blessed light to others,
They are your suff’ring brothers;
Around the wide earth let the tidings swell.
2 Tell the joyful story of his mighty love,
For our sins once smitten, now he reigns above.
Give the light to others, now the truth disclose;
Tell them that our Savior from the dead arose. [Refrain]
3 Like the waves of ocean, songs of joy are rolled,
Where Emmanuel’s banners pure and white unfold.
Give the light to others, till the world shall ring
With glad hallelujahs, to our risen King. [Refrain]
