9944. Eternal Source Of Life And Light

1 Eternal source of life and light,
Supremely good and wise,
To Thee we bring our grateful vows;
Accept our sacrifice.

2 Our dark and erring minds illume
With truth’s celestial rays;
Inspire our hearts with heavenly love,
And tune our lips to praise.

Safely conduct us, by Thy truth,
Through life’s perplexing road;
And bring us, when our journey’s o’er,
Lord, to Thine abode.

4 For in Thy presence e’er abounds
Fullness of purest joy;
At Thy right hand unceasing flow
Pleasures without alloy.
