More Light Shall Break From Out Thy Word

Full Text

1 More light shall break from out Thy word
For pilgrim foll'wers of the gleam,
Till, led by Thy free spirit, Lord,
We see and share the pilgrim dream!

2 What mighty hopes are in our care,
What holy dreams of brotherhood;
God of our Fathers, help us dare
Their passion for the common good!

3 Wild roars the blast, the storm is high!
Above the storm are shining still
The lights by which we live and die;
Our peace is ever in Thy will!

4 The ancient stars, the ancient faith,
Defend us till our voyage is done -
Across the floods of fear and death
The Mayflow'r still is sailing on!
