Hymn/Song Information

Source of light and life divine Thou did




Source of light and life divine!
Thou didst cause the light to shine;
Thou didst bring Thy sunbeams forth
O’er Thy new-created earth.


Shade of night and morning ray
Took from Thee the name of day:
Now again the shades are nigh,
Listen to Thy children’s cry!


May we ne’er, by guilt depressed,
Lose the way to endless rest;
May no thoughts, corrupt and vain,
Draw our souls to earth again.


Rather help them still to rise
Where our dearest treasure lies;
Help us in our daily strife,
Make us struggle into life!
