Lord of the everlasting light

Lord of the everlasting light

Author: Leigh Mitchell Hodges
Tune: LUTHER SEMINARY
Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

1 Lord of the everlasting light,
Let shine on these today
A guiding beam, to lead aright
Their feet along the way.

2 Anoint them freely with thy grace,
That gladly they may share
Earth's many joys, and bravely face
The burdens they must bear.

3 O, may they ever turn to thee
As Father and as Friend;
Secure in thy infinity
Until the journey's end. A-men.

4 And when, beyond the dusk of time,
They greet the dawn above,
O give them, in that bless├Ęd clime,
Thy endlessness of love.

Amen.
