Light of those whose dreary dwelling
Borders on the shades of death,
Jesus, now thyself revealing,
Scatter every cloud beneath.
Still we wait for thine appearing;
Life and joy thy beams impart,
Chasing all our doubts, and cheering
Every meek and contrite heart.
Show thy power in every nation,
O thou Prince of Peace and Love!
Give the knowledge of salvation,
Fix our hearts on things above.
By thine all-sufficient merit,
Every burdened soul release;
By the presence of thy Spirit,
Guide us into perfect peace.
