Representative Text

1 Sin’s gloomy night was o’er me spread,
Till light divine Christ on me shed;
I sang as darkness took its flight:
“Where Jesus is, there is no night.”

Refrain:
There is no night, ‘tis passed away,
Since Jesus came with me to stay;
My happy soul sings with delight:
“Where Jesus is, there is no night.”

2 ‘Twas when my trusting heart believed,
My Lord his wand’ring one received;
Gave me to know, with saints in light:
“Where Jesus is, there is no night.” [Refrain]

3 While journeying up life’s mountain slope,
I smooth the way with Faith and Hope,
Still singing as I near its height:
“Where Jesus is, there is no night.” [Refrain]

4 This light that bids the shadows flee,
Thro’ death’s dark vale my guide shall be;
My soul shall sing with heav’n in sight:
“Where Jesus is, there is no night.” [Refrain]
