1 Place a lamp in the window,
Pray’rfully, constantly lighted;
Love and pity united
Ask it a duty from thee.
Place a lamp in the window;
Some poor boy may discover,
Far away from his mother,
Light that a safeguard will be.
Place a lamp in the window,
Brightly, constantly burning;
Oh, how many, beholding,
Guided to Jesus may be.
2 Oh, how many that wander
Down where the tempter is leading,
Through thy lamp in the window,
Rescued from ruin may be.
Send its rays to the weary,
Hungry, friendless and dreary;
Oh, what joy it will give them,
Light from thy window to see. [Refrain]
3 Place a lamp in thy window;
Think of the good thou art doing;
Love’s kind labor pursuing,
Bringeth reward unto thee.
Keep a lamp in the window,
Till thy mission is ended;
Then forever with Jesus,
Crowned with His love thou shalt be. [Refrain]
