Representative Text

1 Shine around us, thro’ life’s shadows,
Lord of light, illume our way;
Let thy Spirit guide our footsteps,
Lead us on thro’ night to day.

Refrain:
Shine around us, shine around us,
Cheer us on our homeward way;
Let thy Spirit guide our footsteps,
Lead us to thy perfect day.

2 Blessed Savior, King of Glory,
Fill our hearts with thy rich grace;
While the morning breaks in splendor,
Show the brightness of thy face. [Refrain]

3 Shine around us, Sun of gladness,
Star divine, be ever nigh;
Tune our hearts to angel music,
Lift our souls to realms on high. [Refrain]

Lizzie De Armond was a prolific writer of children's hymns, recitations and exercises. When she was twelve years old her first poem was published in the Germantown, Pa. Telegraph, however, it was not until she was a widow with eight children to support that she started writing in earnest. She wrote articles, librettos, nature stories and other works, as well as hymns.
