#213: The Light of the World is Jesus

(Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)

1

The whole world was lost in the darkness of sin —

The Light of the world is Jesus;

Like sunshine at noonday His glory shone in —

The Light of the world is Jesus.

CHORUS

Come to the Light, ’tis shining for thee!

Sweetly the Light has dawned upon me;

Once I was blind, but now I can see —

The Light of the world is Jesus.

2

No darkness have we who in Jesus abide —

The Light of the world is Jesus

The Light of the world is Jesus;

We walk in the Light when we follow our Guide —

The Light of the world is Jesus.

CHORUS

3

Ye dwellers in darkness with sin-blinded eyes —

The Light of the world is Jesus;

Go wash at His bidding and light will arise —

The Light of the world is Jesus.

CHORUS

4

No need of the sunlight in heaven, we’re told —

The Light of that world is Jesus;

The Lamb is the Light in the City of Gold —

The Light of that world is Jesus.

CHORUS
