1 O Christ, Thine eyes of light and love
With Christians always go,
Alike on earth's green fields above
And in the caves below.
2 Thou with the miner in the dark
Dost down the shaft descend;
Thou, while he plies his venturous work,
Art with him as his Friend.
3 No midnight gloom shuts out Thy face,
No silence stills Thy voice;
Our Jesus in the dreariest place
Makes faithful souls rejoice.
4 Then hear us, Lord, and always bless
Our brethren's toil and ours;
From danger shield us, and distress,
From sin and Satan's powers.
5 Add strength and skill to venturous limbs;
Our homes with plenty cheer;
And bid our hearts sing gladsome hymns
For joy that thou art near.
6 Then by Thy cross and sovereign grace
Exalt us, Lord, at last,
To wake and see Thy unveiled face,
Where darkness all is past.
