1 Let my gaze be fixed on thee,
Jesus, the light of the world;
As I look, new beauties see.
Jesus, the light of the world.

Refrain:
Walk in the light, beautiful light,
Come where the dewdrops of mercy are bright,
Falling around us by day and by night,
Jesus, the light of the world.

2 Let my hands be strong for thee,
Jesus, the light of the world;
And my feet be swift and free,
Jesus, the light of the world. [Refrain]

3 When the tempter would alarm,
Jesus, the light of the world;
Bare, oh, bare thy mighty arm.
Jesus, the light of the world. [Refrain]

4 Walk the waves, across life's sea,
Jesus, the light of the world;
Nearer come, O Lord, to me,
Jesus, the light of the world. [Refrain]

5 Be a shelter in the storm,
Jesus, the light of the world;
Keep, oh, keep thy child from harm,
Jesus, the light of the world. [Refrain]
