Representative Text

1 Let in the sunlight of heaven today,
Open thy heart to its beautiful ray,
Welcome the brightness of mercy and love,
Welcome thy Saviour, the Light from above.

Refrain:
Let in the sunlight,
Let in the sunlight,
Let in the sunlight of heaven today,
Let in the sunlight,
Let in the sunlight,
Open thy heart to its beautiful ray.

2 Glad in the morning his heralds appear,
Flushing the dawn with his glory so near,
Clouds flee before him, and night hides her face,
Lo! the best morning is coming apace. [Refrain]

3 ‘Rouse thee, O worker, the broad day is here,
Earnestly labor some sad heart to cheer;
Into thy spirit his search-light has burned,
Lo! all its darkness to brightness has turned. [Refrain]

4 Labor then joyfully, true to the light,
Work while ’tis day, for fast cometh night;
Light of the world! naught thy glory can dim,—
Lo! are we conq’rers, while trusting in him. [Refrain]
