Representative Text

1. Light of the world’s dark story,
Jesus, Thy name we praise;
Thou art the Lord of glory,
The brightness of our days.
We would go singing, singing,
Along our pilgrim road,
With love and hope upwinging,
Haste to our fixed abode.

2. Joy for the world’s salvation
Wrought amid sins and fears,
Man’s glorious consummation
Shining beyond our tears.
Songs in the room of sighing,
Joy in despite of woe,
On God’s good care relying
That leads us as we go.
