Lo, a gleam from yonder heaven

if you do not hear the tune, click here.

Lo, a gleam from yonder heaven 
breaks upon our starless night. 
Like a kindly hand it beckons, 
"Walk in me; I am the Light." 

                                Jesus, Light serene, eternal! 
                                Glorious sun of righteousness! 
                                Morning Star of all the ages, 
                                with thy beams our spirits bless. 

When we're tossed on troubled waters, 
on temptation's ocean wide, 
like a silver flood descending, 
he our souls will safely guide. 


Out of sin, and out of weakness, 
this fair light still beckons on, 
through the valley of all shadows, 
to his own resplendent dawn.
