Hymn/Song Information

Great light of Life Thou nature's Lord




Great Light of life, thou nature's Lord,
Bring light from darkness by thy word;
Shine in our hearts, in mercy shine,
To give the light of truth divine.


Light of our souls! thyself reveal;
Thy power and presence let us feel;
And know and see thy wond'rous things
Concealed from prophets, priests and kings.


In the dear face of Christ our God,
His righteousness and pardoning blood,
May we behold our all in all,
And at his feet of mercy fall.


There thy perfections shine most bright;
May we behold them with delight;
And see how justice, truth and grace
Unite and smile in Jesu's face.


Great sun of righteousness! arise—
Open our long benighted eyes;
Shine, Jesus, shine from day to day,
Till all that's dark be done away.
