Hymn 171
Light of the world! forever, ever shining

1. Light of the world! forever, ever shining, There is no change in Thee; True light of life, all joy and health enshrining, Thou canst not fade nor flee. 2. Thou hast arisen, but Thou descendeth never; Today shines as the past; All that Thou wast Thou art and shalt be ever, Brightness from first to last. 3. Night visits not Thy sky, nor storm, nor sadness; Day fills up all its blueŚ Unfailing beauty, and unfaltering gladness, And lover forever new. 4. Light of the world! undimming and unsetting, O shine each mist away; Banish the fear, the falsehood, and the fretting; Be our unchanging day.
