Light of my life

Representative Text

1 O thou Light of my soul, blessed Saviour,
Thou hast brought to this dark world the light;
Once the darkness of sin lay upon me,
And I loved nothing else but the night.

O thou Light, of my life,
O thou Friend from Galilee!
Like a bright beacon light,
Let me shine in this world for thee.

2 O thou Friend of the poor, blessed Saviour,
Thou hast brought from thy bountiful store
Many treasures and riches and blessings,
And each day thou art giving us more. [Refrain]

3 O thou Shepherd of men, blessed Saviour,
Thou wouldst gather thy poor scattered sheep
From the mountains of sin to the pasture,
Where in safety thy fold thou canst keep. [Refrain]

4 O thou King of my life, blessed Saviour,
From my heart I would evermore raise,
With the hosts of redeemed ones in heaven,
Unto thee joyous anthems of praise. [Refrain]
