1. If never the gaze of sun and moon,
On the blessèd home above,
From whence are its rays of wondrous noon?
Oh! The Lamb is the light thereof.

Refrain
They shall walk in white,
There shall be no night
In the fadeless home above;
And the shout shall ring
As the ransomed sing,
Oh! The Lamb is the light thereof.

2. And thus saith the page of Holy Writ
Of the land of song and love,
The glory of God did lighten it,
And the Lamb is the light thereof. [Refrain]

3. Then follow Him, till the eye grows dim,
And the soul, as ark-freed dove,
Shall speed away to realms of day,
Where The Lamb is the light thereof. [Refrain]
