Representative Text

1 “Lights for our Jesus,” our motto shall be,
Lights for our Jesus tho’ youthful are we;
Bright’ning the pathway by smiles and by song,
As we are marching to glory along.

Refrain:
Lights for our Jesus,
Lights for our Jesus,
Bright’ning the pathway along;
“Lights for our Jesus,” our motto shall be,
Shining for Jesus, how happy are we.

2 Lights for our Jesus in loving accord,
Learning the lessons contain’d in the Word;
Lessons to help us the pathway along,
Keeping us ever from all that is wrong. [Refrain]

3 Lights for our Jesus whose name we confess,
Who doth the children so lovingly bless;
Lights for our Jesus who suffer’d and died,
That we might with him forever abide. [Refrain]
