OUT OF DARKNESS INTO LIGHT




Long in darkness we have waited
For the shining of the Light;
Long have felt the things we hated,
Sink us still in deeper night.

Blessed Jesus, loving Saviour,
Tender, faithful, strong and true,
Break the fetters
that have bound us,
Make us in Thyself anew.


Now, at last, the Light appeareth,
Jesus stands upon the shore;
And with tender voice He calleth,
“Come to Me, and sin no more!”

Blessed Jesus, loving Saviour,
Tender, faithful, strong and true,
Break the fetters
that have bound us,
Make us in Thyself anew.


Nothing have we but our weakness,
Naught but sorrow, sin, and care:
All within is loathsome vileness,
All without is dark despair.

Blessed Jesus, loving Saviour,
Tender, faithful, strong and true,
Break the fetters
that have bound us,
Make us in Thyself anew.


All our talents we have wasted,
All Thy laws have disobeyed;
But Thy goodness now we’ve tasted,
In Thy robes we stand arrayed.

Blessed Jesus, loving Saviour,
Tender, faithful, strong and true,
Break the fetters
that have bound us,
Make us in Thyself anew.


Thou have saved up—
do Thou keep us.
Guide us by Thine eye divine;
Let the Holy Spirt teach us,
That our light may ever shine.

Blessed Jesus, be Thou near us
Give us of Thy grace to-day;
While we’re calling,
do Thou hear us,
Send us now Thy peace, we pray.
