Full Text

1 Lord, disperse the mists of error,
In Thy light let me see light;
Give Thou me that faith and vision
Whereby I may walk aright.
In my Saviour's path discerning,
Through this vale of doubt and strife,
Footsteps to eternal life.

2 Shed Thy light upon my pathway,
Be my light in death's dark hour.
Let me, freed from sin's dread burden,
From the Law's accusing power,
Nearer draw, and ever nearer,
To that land with glory bright,
Where Thou art Eternal Light.

Amen.
