Hymn/Song Information

Light of the world we hail Thee flushing




Light of the world, we hail Thee,
flushing the eastern skies;
Never shall darkness veil Thee
again from human eyes;
Too long, alas, withholden,
now spread from shore to shore;
Thy light, so glad and golden,
shall set on earth no more.


Light of the world, Thy beauty
steals into every heart,
And glorifies with duty
lifeís poorest, humblest, part;
Thou robest in Thy splendor
the simple ways of men,
And helpest them to render
light back to Thee again.


Light of the world, before Thee
our spirits prostrate fall;
We worship, we adore Thee,
Thou Light, the Life of all;
With Thee is no forgetting
of all Thine hand hath made;
Thy rising hath no setting,
Thy sunshine hath no shade.


Light of the world, illumine
this darkened earth of Thine,
Till everything thatís human be
filled with whatís divine;
Till every tongue and nation,
from sinís dominion free,
Rise in the new creation which
springs from love and Thee.
