1 See whose glory fills the skies:
Jesus, the light of the world!
Sun of righteousness, arise:
Jesus, the light of the world!

Refrain:
We'll walk in the light!
Beautiful light!
Shine where the dewdrops of mercy shine bright.
Oh, shine all around us by day and by night,
Jesus, the light of the world.

2 Pierce the gloom of sin and grief,
Jesus, the light of the world!
Scatter all my unbelief,
Jesus, the light of the world! [Refrain]

3 More and more thyself display,
Jesus, the light of the world!
Shining to the perfect day,
Jesus, the light of the world! [Refrain]

4 Visit, then, this soul of mine,
Jesus, light of the world!
Fill me, Radiancy divine!
Jesus, the light of the world! [Refrain]
