O Word of Truth! in devious paths
My wayward feet have trod;
I have not kept the day serene
I gave at morn to God.
And now 'tis night, and night within;
O God, the light hath fled!
I have not kept the vow I made
When morn its glories shed.
For clouds of gloom from nether world
Obscured my upward way;
O Christ the Light, Thy light bestow
And turn my night to day!
