Representative Text

1 Light of the world, come nigh and bless
Thy children here below,
Who in Thy house Thy Name confess,
On us Thy grace bestow.

2 Light of the world, in manger low
Didst deign to lay Thy head,
That we in darkest night of sin
Might to Thy light be led.

3 Light of the world, into our hearts
Let Thy full glory shine.
That we may follow now Thy star
Until we reach Thy shrine.

4 Light of the world, we worship Thee;
Our gifts to Thee we bring;
Accept our sinful hearts, O Lord,
While praise to Thee we sing.

5 Light of the world, when Thou shalt come
Our Judge and Lord to be,
May we through Thy dear sacrifice
Forever dwell in Thee.
