37. Hold Your Light Higher

1 Many precious souls are groping
In the darkness and the night,
Waiting for the dawn of morning,
Yearning for the light.

Refrain:
Hold your light still higher, brother,
Keep it burning clear and bright;
You may rescue some poor lost one
Struggling, struggling toward the light.

2 God, who called you into service,
Would constrain you by His love,
To assist your erring brothers
To the port above. [Refrain]

3 Like a faithful light-house watcher,
Keeping every beacon bright,
Let your lamp shine out, my brother,
On the gloomy night. [Refrain]

4 Do not let the thousands perish
Underneath the angry wave,
But reach out the hand of rescue,
And the lost ones save. [Refrain]
