7,7,7,5

JESU, LUX HOMINUM

When the morn with golden ray,

Ushers in the new-born day,

Brighter be Thy beams, I pray,

Jesu, Light of men.

When the joys of earth are blest,

When I deem its gifts the best,

Lead me to the land of rest,

Jesu, Light of men.

When the clouds around my head

Fill the soul with doubt and dread,

Let Thy gracious light be shed,

Jesu, Light of men.

When the darkness veils the light,

When the day is lost in night,

Shine in beams of radiance bright,

Jesu, Light of men.

138

When in night of grief I mourn,

When with pain my heart is torn,

Come in brightness, like the morn,

Jesu, Light of men.

When the vale of death I tread,

Clouds of darkness round my head,

On the path Thy brightness shed,

Jesu, Light of men.

When I dwell in light Divine,

When the bliss of heaven is mine,

Light of lights, all praise be Thine,

Jesu, Light of men.
