Full Text

1 I have a Savior who lightens my way,
I have a Savior who brightens the day,
I have a Savior who hears when I pray,—
‘Tis Jesus, the Light of the world.

Refrain:
He makes my way lighter,
He makes my day brighter,
He walks all life’s journey with me;
His presence and glory
Are round me and o’er me,
And lightens the pathway for me.

2 I have a Savior who always is true,
I have a Savior who always will do
All He has promised for me and for you,—
‘Tis Jesus, the Light of the world. [Refrain]

3 I have a Savior wherever I be,
I have a Savior on land or on sea,
Caring and watching in love over me,—
‘Tis Jesus, the Light of the world. [Refrain]

4 I have a Savior who’s reigning within,
Ready and anxious to help me to win
Victory over all evil and sin,—
‘Tis Jesus, the Light of the world. [Refrain]
