Hymn/Song Information

I saw on earth another light Than that




I saw on earth another light
Than that which lit my eye
Come forth, as from my soul within,
And from a higher sky.


Its beams still shone unclouded on,
When in the distant west
The sun I once had known had sunk
Forever to his rest.


And on I walked, though dark the night,
Nor rose his orb by day;
As one to whom as surer guide
Was pointing out the way.


‘Twas brighter far than noonday’s beam,
It shone from God within;
And lit, as by a lamp from heaven,
The world’s dark track of sin.
