Sweet Savior, bless us ere we go: Thy word into our minds instill

O Light, whose beams illumine all

O Light, Whose beams illumine all
From twilight dawn to perfect day,
Shine Thou before the shadows fall
That lead our wandering feet astray;
At morn and eve Thy radiance pour,
That youth may love and age adore.
