Representative Text

1 Now the christmas light is fading,
And its latest shadows fall:—
May life gain new inspiration,
Peace, goodwill abide with all.

Refrain:
Onward from this joyful service,
With a song our footsteps bend;
Father, may thy benediction,
On each pilgrim path descend.

2 Each to his appointed station
In the world of action goes;
May he win a sure endurance,
From the strength this day bestows. [Refrain]

3 Varied are life’s joys and sorrows,
Heart should beat for human heart;
May we learn wise ministration
From the truth these hours impart. [Refrain]

4 Yes, the christmas light is fading,
But God’s love and truth remain;
May we in His Son abiding,
Light and life eternal gain. [Refrain]
