1. The light of God rests on the faceOf brook and flow’r and treeAnd kindles in our happy heartsThe hope of things to be.
[Chorus]Father, let thy light divineShine on us, we pray.Touch our eyes that we may see;Teach us to obey.Ours the sacred mission isTo bear thy message far.The light of faith is in our hearts,Truth our guiding star.
2. The light of faith abides withinThe heart of ev’ry child;Like buds that wait for blossoming,It grows with radiance mild.
3. Today thine unseen purposesBy faith’s rare light we feel.Dear Father, make us pure in heart;To us thy will reveal.
