998. C. M. Barton. |Walk in the Light.|
1 Walk in the light! so shalt thou know
That fellowship of love,
His Spirit only can bestow,
Who reigns in light above.
2 Walk in the light! and thou shalt own
Thy darkness passed away,
Because that light hath on thee shone
In which is perfect day.
3 Walk in the light! and e'en the tomb
No fearful shade shall wear;
Glory shall chase away its gloom,
For Christ hath conquered there!
4 Walk in the light! and thine shall be
A path, though thorny, -- bright:
For God, by grace, shall dwell in thee,
And God himself is light!
