1 O Christ, our true and only light,
enlighten those who sit in night;
let those afar now hear your voice
and in your fold with us rejoice.
2 Fill with the radiance of your grace
the souls now lost in error's maze;
enlighten those whose inmost minds
some dark delusion haunts and blinds.
3 O gently call those gone astray
that they may find the saving way;
let ev'ry conscience sore oppressed
in you find peace and heav'nly rest.
4 Shine on the darkened and the cold,
recall the wand'rers to your fold;
unite all those who walk apart,
confirm the weak and doubting heart,
5 That they with us may evermore
such grace with wond'ring thanks adore
and endless praise to you be giv'n
by all your Church in earth and heav'n.
