1 Great ring of light, true circle with no ending;
clear beam so bright, whose purpose knows no bending;
O Word of God, in darkness always shining out.
2 A man who cried, up on a cross at Calvary;
for him who died, an empty tomb, a mystery;
O risen Christ, all pain and loss transcending.
3 Immortal fire of love forever yearning;
flame of desire for our salvation burning;
Spirit divine, our friend, and present comforter.
4 The light shines still, the eternal Word has spoken;
on Calvary's hill the power of death is broken;
and I receive the life, the joy, the loving.
