1 O Light of light, shine in!
Cast out this night of sin,
Create true day within;
O Light of light, shine in!

Refrain:
O Light, all light excelling,
Make my heart Thy dwelling;
O Joy, all grief dispelling,
To my poor heart come in.

2 O Joy of joys, come in!
End Thou this grief of sin,
Create calm peace within;
O Joy of joys, come in. [Refrain]

3 O Life of life, pour in!
Expel this death of sin,
Awake true life within;
O Life of life, pour in. [Refrain]

4 O Love of love, flow in!
This hateful root of sin
Pluck up, destroy, within;
O Love of love, flow in. [Refrain]

5 My God and Lord, O come!
Of joys the Joy and Sum,
Make in this heart Thy home;
My God and Lord, O come! [Refrain]

Horatius Bonar was born at Edinburgh, in 1808. His education was obtained at the High School, and the University of his native city. He was ordained to the ministry, in 1837, and since then has been pastor at Kelso. In 1843, he joined the Free Church of Scotland. His reputation as a religious writer was first gained on the publication of the "Kelso Tracts," of which he was the author. He has also written many other prose works, some of which have had a very large circulation. Nor is he less favorably known as a religious poet and hymn-writer. The three series of "Hymns of Faith and Hope," have passed through several editions. --Annotations of the Hymnal, Charles Hutchins, M.A. 1872… Go to person page >
