Full Text

1 Tho’ clouds like night hang over your way,
Rejoice in the light, rejoice in the light;
You yet may walk in a perfect day,
Rejoice in the light, in the light.

Refrain:
Jesus is the light, the only light,
Jesus is the light of the world;
Jesus scatters gloom, He chases the night,
Jesus is the light of the world.

2 Tho’ mists of doubt your pathway shall shroud,
Rejoice in the light, rejoice in the light;
That light can pierce thro’ the deepest cloud,
Rejoice in the light, in the light. [Refrain]

3 Tho’ foes shall frown and trouble you sore,
Rejoice in the light, rejoice in the light;
Those ills will then never vex you more,
Rejoice in the light, in the light. [Refrain]
