Christ My Song - 728
Light of the world, I come to thee! - The Light of life
(Horatius Bonar/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)
The Light of life.
1. Light of the world, I come to thee!
take thou my hand, be thou my Guide,
better than life or light to me;
there is no darkness at thy side. (PDF - Midi)
2. Light of the world, light up my heart!
be thou my everlasting Sun;
thy brightness to my soul impart
while through this waste I wander on.
3. Light of the world, thy love is all
I need to guide me through the gloom.
The way is dark; on thee I call,
a pilgrim passing to the tomb.
4. Light of the world, oh, speak to me,
in this rough scene of change and strife!
Say, “I will keep and comfort thee;
I am the Way, the Truth, the Life.”
Horatius Bonar, "Until the Day break", 1890, 62-63.
