Representative Text

1 When danger and sorrow encompassed my soul,
And dark seemed my path as the night,
I cried to the Lord and He parted the clouds
And let in His glorious light.

Refrain:
The light brightly beamed on my soul,
The light brightly beamed on my soul,
Since Jesus, my Saviour, dispelled the dark clouds,
The light brightly beams on my soul.

2 Now bright as the noontide the pathway appears,
The clouds have all vanished away;
I walk in the light of my Lord’s loving smile,
And dwell in His beautiful day. [Refrain]

3 To Jesus, who rescued my soul from despair,
My life’s sweetest service I bring;
And now in my heart with rejoicing and song,
I crown Him my Saviour and King. [Refrain]

4 The Saviour is calling—why longer delay?
He’s waiting your soul to receive,
He’ll pardon and cleanse you, and make you His child,
If only on Him you believe. [Refrain]
