Representative Text

1 There’s a light that is shining, my brother, for you,
Aglow in the mansions divine;
It was lit by the hand of the Master of Life,
It shines on your pathway and mine.

Refrain:
There’s a light, blessed light,
That shines from the mansions divine;
It was lit by the hand of the Master of Life,
It shines on your pathway and mine.

2 There’s a light that is shining, my brother, for you,
When doubts on your spirit arise;
O call on the Name that is mighty to save,
And light will descend from the skies. [Refrain]

3 There’s a light that is shining, my brother, for you,
Tho’ dark be your path as the night;
Look away to the beautiful city of God,
Where Jesus himself is the light. [Refrain]
