1 What a blessed peace we know as we travel here below,
While we’re walking i the beautiful light of God;
Brighter, fairer grows the way as we journey day by day,
While we’re walking in the beautiful light of God.

Refrain:
Walking in the beautiful light of God,
Walking in the beautiful light of God;
In communion with the Lord,
Trusting in His holy word,
We are walking in the beautiful light of God.

2 Like the sunlight from above God reveals His wondrous love,
While we’re walking in the beautiful light of God;
Here redemption’s crimson flow makes us whiter than the snow,
While we’re walking in the beautiful light of God. [Refrain]

3 Holding sweet communion here with our blessed Lord so dear,
We are walking in the beautiful light of God;
From all condemnation free, having perfect victory,
We are walking in the beautiful light of God. [Refrain]

4 Over mountains rough and steep, thro’ the valleys long and deep,
We are walking in the beautiful light of God;
To the mansions of delight, to the land where comes no night,
We are walking in the beautiful light of God. [Refrain]
