Hymn/Song Information

Light of the world forever ever shining




Light of the world! forever, ever shining,
There is no change in Thee;
True Light of life, all joy and health enshrining,
Thou canst not fade nor flee.


Thou hast arisen, but Thou descendeth never;
Today shines as the past;
All that Thou wast Thou art and shalt be ever,
Brightness from first to last.


Night visits not Thy sky, nor storm, nor sadness;
Day fills up all its blueŚ
Unfailing beauty, and unfaltering gladness,
And lover forever new.


Light of the world! undimming and unsetting,
O shine each mist away;
Banish the fear, the falsehood, and the fretting;
Be our unchanging Day.
