331. In the Light of God

1 Along a dark and gloomy path
I groped beneath the shades of death;
No hope beyond my dying breath,
Till light from the Savior came.

Refrain:
In the light of God,
Now my soul is singing, all, all is bright;
In the light of God,
I’m now in the light of God.

2 My darkness now is passed away,
In Jesus all is perfect day;
And peace and comfort ever stay,
Since Christ is my perfect light. [Refrain]

3 O Jesus, to my heart so sweet,
Thy Word’s a light unto my feet;
How holy, happy, and complete,
I walk in the precious light. [Refrain]

4 All glory to my Savior’s name,
To do Thy will my highest aim;
Thy favor’s more than earthly fame,
Thy smile is my constant light. [Refrain]
