1 The light is here, the blessed light,
The shadows lift and take their flight;
And thus, to guide our steps aright,
We hear the Saviour saying:

Refrain:
“He that followeth me,
He that followeth me,
Shall not walk in darkness,
Shall not walk in darkness,
But shall have the light of life,
The light of life.”

2 The light is pure, the light is free,
It shines for all, that all may see;
And oh, ‘tis sweet beyond degree,
The voice that still is saying: [Refrain]

3 The light abides in him alone,
As by his word so sweetly shown;
And thus in faith from yonder throne,
We hear the Saviour saying: [Refrain]

4 The light is o’er the upward way,
It shineth on to perfect day;
And we are safe when we obey
The voice that still is saying: [Refrain]
