Light of those whose dreary dwelling

Borders on the shades of death,

Jesus, now thyself revealing,

Scatter every cloud beneath.

Still we wait for thine appearing;

Life and joy thy beams impart,

Chasing all our doubts, and cheering

Every meek and contrite heart.

Show thy power in every nation,

O thou Prince of Peace and Love!

Give the knowledge of salvation,

Fix our hearts on things above.

By thine all-sufficient merit,

Every burdened soul release;

By the presence of thy Spirit,

Guide us into perfect peace.

Amen.
