Hymn 172
O Light whose beams illumine all

1. O Light whose beams illumine all From twilight dawn to perfect day, Shine Thou before the shadows fall That lead our wandering feet astray, At morn and eve Thy radiance pour That youth may love, and age adore. 2. O Way, through whom our souls draw near, To yon eternal home of peace where perfect love shall cast out fear, And earth’s vain toil and wandering cease In strength or weakness may we see Our heavenward path, O Lord, through Thee. 3. O Life, the well that ever flows To slake the thirst of those that faint, Thy power to bless, what seraph knows? Thy joy supreme, what words can paint? In earth’s last hour of fleeting breath, Be Thou our Conqueror over death. 4. O Light, O Way, O Truth, O Life, O Jesus, born mankind to save, Give Thou Thy peace in deadliest strife Shed Thou Thy calm on stormiest wave Be Thou our hope, our joy, our dread, Lord of living and the dead.
