1833. Give Light, O Lord

1. Give light, O Lord, that we may learn
The way that leads to Thee,
That where our hearts true joy discern,
Our life may be.

2. Give light, O Lord, that we may know
Thy one unchanging truth,
And follow, all our days below,
Our guide in youth.

3. Give light, O Lord, that we may see
Where wisdom bids beware,
And turn our doubting minds to Thee,
In faithful prayer.

4. Give light, O Lord, that we may look
Beneath, around, above,
And learn from nature’s living book
Thy power and love.

5. Give light, O Lord, that we may read
All signs that Thou art near,
And, while we live, in word and deed
Thy name revere.

6. Give light, O Lord, that we may trace
In trial, pain, and loss
In poorest lot, and lowest place,
A Savior’s cross.

7. Give light, O Lord, that we may see
A home beyond the sky,
Where all who live in Christ with Thee
Shall never die.
