Hymn/Song Information

O BLESSED JESUS BE OUR LIGHT




O Saviour, bless us ere we go;
Thy word into our minds instill,
And make our lukewarm hearts to glow
With lowly love and fervent will.
Through life’s long day and death’s dark night.
O blessed Jesus, be our light.


Grant us, dear Lord, from evil ways
True absolution and release;
And bless us, more than in past days,
With purity and inward peace.
Through life’s long day and death’s dark night.
O blessed Jesus, be our light.


Labour is sweet, for thou hast toiled;
And care is light, for thou hast cared:
Ah! never let our works be soiled
With strife, or by deceit ensnared.
Through life’s long day and death’s dark night.
O blessed Jesus, be our light.


For all we love, the poor, the sad,
The sinful, unto thee we call;
O let thy mercy make us glad;
Thou art our Saviour and our all.
Through life’s long day and death’s dark night.
O blessed Jesus, be our light.
