Representative Text

1 Light of the gospel, how clearly and steadily,
Fadeless in splendor it shineth today!
Beacon of beauty, it burneth unfailingly,
Throwing a radiance over the way.

Refrain:
Shining for me, shining for thee,
Light of the gospel, unfailing and bright;
Shining for me, shining for thee,
Light of the ages, beautiful light.

2 Hope of the helpless, and joy of the sorrowing,
Shedding its rays in the darkest retreat;
Light of the mariner, guide of the traveler,
Pillar of fire to the wanderer’s feet. [Refrain]

3 Sun, moon, and stars may be shorn of their brilliancy,
Planets may pale with the aeons of time,
Yet will this light of the gospel increasingly
Glow in its splendor and beauty sublime. [Refrain]
