Representative Text

1. O the kindly light is shining on my pathway,
Thro’ the gath’ring gloom and darkness of the night;
And I fear no evil, for the way before me
In a flood of glory now appears to sight.

Blessèd kindly light, glorious cheering ray,
’Tis the light of Heaven shining glad and free;
Blessèd kindly light, leading all the way,
O the kindly light is leading even me.

2. I was lost amid the heavy mist of sorrow,
Grieving for the loved ones who had passed from sight,
When the light before me led my fal’tring footsteps
To the path they journeyed to the mansions bright. [Refrain]

3. When the journey of this life is sometime over,
I know I’ll be glad I followed all the way,
For the light that guided safely thro’ the darkness
Then will lead me onward to the perfect day. [Refrain]
