Representative Text

1 Wondrous light from Calvary,
Every wandering one may see,
For ’tis kindly, brightly gleaming each day;
With the eye of faith behold,
And be guided to the fold,
From its blessèd refuge never to stray.

Wondrous light from Calvary,
Thro’ each day my pilot be!
Safely o’er the rugged heights,
Thro’ the dark and cheerless nights,
Lead me home, O Calvary’s wondrous light!

2 Glorious light from Calvary,
Oh! how precious unto me
Since I saw its gentle beckoning gleam!
I was bowing ’neath a load
On sin’s bleak and rugged road,
When it pierced the gloom in beauty supreme. [Refrain]

3 Fadeless light from Calvary,
For the millions shining free,
Flash it forth upon the desolate waste;
Precious souls are sinking there,
In the depths of dark despair,
Will you, Christian, to their rescue then haste? [Refrain]
