Father, let thy light divine

Father, let thy light divine

Published in 4 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Father, let thy light divine
Brightly o'er my pathway shine;
Bid the shadows disappear,
Banish every sinful fear;
Guide me in the narrow way
To the realms of endless day.

2 Canst thou own me as thy child,
One so oft by sin defiled?
Canst thou fit me, by thy grace,
To behold thy dwelling-place?
Trembling, Lord, I would believe;
Let me not myself deceive.

3 But if I am all thy own,
Let me live for thee alone;
Let the honor of thy name
All my inmost soul inflame;
Let thy Holy Spirit move,
Till my heart is filled with love.
