1 Light of the world, shine on our souls;
Thy grace to us afford;
And while we meet to learn thy truth,
Be thou our teacher, Lord.
2 As once thou didst thy word expound
To those that walked with thee,
So teach us, Lord, to understand,
And its blest fullness see;
3 Its richness, sweetness, power, and depth,
Its holiness discern;
Its joyful news of saving grace
By blest experience learn.
4 Thou may thy word be dearer still,
And studied more each day;
And as it richly dwells within,
Thyself in it display.
