1 List to the voice that is speaking in love,
Calling to those that are straying;
Message of mercy that comes from above,
Hear what the Savior is saying.

Walk in the light,
Follow the steps of the Savior;
Walk in the light,
Walk in the light forever.

2 Walk in the light; it is Jesus who pleads,
Earnestly seeking to guide you,
Wandering blindly in night's gloom and shades,
Heedless of dangers beside you. [Refrain]

3 Walk in the light; 'tis the Savior's command,
These are the words he has given,
Leading us on to the long-promised land,
Leading from earth up to heaven. [Refrain]
