C. M.

Jones Very.

The Light from Within.

I saw on earth another light

Than that which lit my eye

Come forth, as from my soul within,

And from a higher sky.

Its beams still shone unclouded on,

When in the distant west

The sun I once had known had sunk

Forever to his rest.

And on I walked, though dark the night,

Nor rose his orb by day;

As one to whom a surer guide

Was pointing out the way.

’Twas brighter far than noonday’s beam,

It shone from God within;

And lit, as by a lamp from heaven,

The world’s dark track of sin.
