Glory to the new-born King.
Jesus, the light of the world.

We’ll walk in the light, beautiful light.
Come where the dewdrops of mercy shine bright.
Oh, shine all around us by day and by night.

Jesus, the light of the world.
Join the triumph of the skies.
Jesus, the light of the world. [Refrain]

Jesus, the light of the world.
