The beautiful Light

Representative Text

1 There's a light across the sea
That is beck'ning unto me;
And a voice now seems to say,
Come, dear sinner, come this way.

Jesus is the beautiful Light,
Shining ev'ry day and night;
Guiding pilgrims onward each day,
As He lights the homeward way.

2 Thro' the gloom of sin's dark night,
Comes the gleam of heaven's light;
While its rays now shine on me,
Lord, I come, I come to Thee. [Refrain]

3 'Tis a glowing light of love,
Sent from God in heav'n above;
May it guide me safely home,
O'er the raging billow's foam. [Refrain]

4 Lord, to Thee I trust my soul,
Keep my life in Thy control;
'Till I reach the golden strand,
In fair Canaan's happy land. [Refrain]
