1 O, Christian, do not hide your light!
For ye are the light of the world,
But keep it trimmed and burning bright,
For ye are the light of the world.

Refrain:
For ye are the light of the world,
For ye are the light of the world;
Then keep your lamps all burning bright,
For ye are the light of the world.

2 Go show to all the path of right!
For ye are the light of the world,
Go bring the straying back to light,
For ye are the light of the world. [Refrain]

3 O do not let your light burn low,
For ye are the light of the world,
But keep it bright and onward go,
For ye are the light of the world. [Refrain]
