469. O Grant Us Light

1 O grant us light, that we may know
wisdom that you alone canst give,
That truth may guide us as we go,
and virtue bless the lives we live.

2 O grant us light that we may find
where error lurks in human lore.
And turn to you our seeking minds,
to love your holy Word the more.

3 O grant us light, that we may learn
how dead is life from you apart,
How sure is joy for all who turn
to you an undivided heart.

4 O grant us light, when soon or late,
all earthly scenes shall pass away,
In you to find the open gate,
to deathless home and endless day.
