Representative Text

1 If never the gaze of sun and moon,
On the blessed home above,
From whence, are its rays of wondrous noon?
Oh! "the Lamb is the light thereof."

Chorus:
They shall walk in white, there shall be no night
In the fadeless home above;
And the shout shall ring as the ransomed sing,
Oh! "the Lamb is the light thereof."

2 And thus saith the page of Holy Writ
Of the land of song and love,
"The glory of God did lighten it,
And the Lamb is the light thereof." [Chorus]

3 Then follow Him till the eye grows dim,
And the soul, as ark-freed dove,
Shall speed away to realms of day,
Where "the Lamb is the light thereof." [Chorus]
