1 The darkness is pass’d and the true light is shining,
The light that first shone over Bethlehem’s plain;
And the song of the angels new voices are chiming,
Of glory to God and salvation to me.

Refrain:
The true light is shining,
The true light is shining,
And songs are arising from over the sea;
While God in His mercy and love is inclining,
The true light is shining for you and for me.

2 The darkness is pass’d and the true light is shining,
The shadows are fleeing and morn comes apace;
There’s a glow in the east of a bright silver lining,
The world is awakened to hear of God’s grace. [Refrain]

3 The darkness is pass’d and the true light is shining;
Oh, let us with light by the Spirit be filled;
For if yielded to God ere our day is declining,
The light must shine thro’ us, as Jesus hath will’d. [Refrain]
