Hymn/Song Information

O Christ our true and only light




O Christ, our true and only Light,
Illumine those who sit in night;
Let those afar now hear Thy voice,
And in Thy fold with us rejoice.


Fill with the radiance of Thy grace
The souls now lost in error's maze
And all whom in their secret minds
Some dark delusion haunts and blinds.


Oh, gently call those gone astray
That they may find the saving way!
Let every conscience sore opprest
In Thee find peace and heavenly rest.


And all who else
have strayed from Thee,
O gently seek; Thy healing be
To every wounded conscience given;
And let them also share Thy heaven.


O make the deaf to hear Thy Word;
And teach the dumb to speak,
dear Lord,
Who dare not yet the faith avow
Though secretly they hold it now.


Shine on the darkened and the cold;
Recall the wanderers to Thy fold;
Unite those now who walk apart;
Confirm the weak and doubting heart.


So they with us may evermore
Such grace with
wondering thanks adore,
And endless praise to Thee be given
By all the Church in earth and heaven.
