1 Hold up thy light, O child of grace!
Be not afraid to let it shine
On all around, but rather fear
To hide this precious light divine.
2 Hold up thy light! Thou canst not tell,
However feeble be its ray,
But some poor soul may catch its beam,
And by it find the narrow way.
3 Hold up thy light with steady hand,
Thought it be faint! Who does not know,
Where darkness reigns, how far and clear
Even a little light will show?
4 Hold up thy light! 'Tis God's command,
And till with thee time cease to roll,
His voice thou canst not disobey
But at the peril of thy soul.Source: The Seventh-Day Adventist Hymn and Tune Book: for use in divine worship #1037
