Representative Text

1 There is a light that shineth in darkness,
Beautiful light that shineth afar;
Wonderful light that bringeth us gladness,
Heavenly light, love’s glorious star.

Look, look, ‘tis shining for thee,
Look, look, ‘tis shining for me;
Look to the light, the beautiful light,
The light that is shining for all.

2 Light of the world—our Savior is given,
Bringing us joy for sorrow and strife;
He is the pathway leading to heaven,
Jesus, the “Way, the Truth and the Life.” [Refrain]

3 Looking to Christ, no sorrow can harm me,
Looking to Him no ill shall befall;
Living with Jesus, naught can alarm me,
Never in Him is “Darkness at all.” [Refrain]
