Full Text

1 It is not dark where Jesus is,
He makes my pathway bright;
The darkest night is turned to day
When he becomes my light.

Refrain:
That blessed Light, that blessed Light
That streams upon my way;
I need no other sun nor star
To guide by night or day.

2 When I am filled with sore distress
And life is sad and drear,
His gracious smile dispels my gloom,
And fills my soul with cheer. [Refrain]

3 Oft have I seen the clouds depart
When his benignant ray
Has pierced the sable mystery
And bade it flee away. [Refrain]

4 I will not fear death’s gloomy vale,
Nor heed the pall and bier;
The valley shall be filled with joy,
If Jesus be but near. [Refrain]

5 The Saviour is the Light of Life
When here by tempests driv’n;
My Sun, that scatters ev’ry cloud;
My Star, that guides to heavn’n. [Refrain]
