Full Text

1 We’ll follow Jesus in the way,
Shining more and more;
It leadeth to the perfect day,
Shining more and more.

Shining more and more,
As nears the golden shore;
The path that Jesus loves to bless,
It shineth more and more.

2 With tender love and wondrous grace,
Shining more and more;
With sunshine from the Saviour’s face,
Shining more and more. [Refrain]

3 With faith that rests alone on him,
Shining more and more;
With hopes, no passing cloud can dim,
Shining more and more. [Refrain]

4 With beams of everlasting lights,
Shining more and more;
With gleams of glory, pure and bright,
Shining more and more. [Refrain]
