Walk in the Light

Lyrics ~ Bernard Barton, 1784 - 1849

Music ~ American Melody (arr. by John W. Peterson, 1921 - ?



Stanza 1:

Walk i the light! so shalt thou know

That fellowship of love

His Spirit only can bestow

Who reigns in light above.



Stanza 2:

Walk in the light! and thou shalt find

Thy heart made truly His,

Who dwells in cloudless light enshrined,

In whom no darkness is.



Stanza 3:

Walk in the light! and thou shalt own

Thy darkness passed away,

Because that light hath on thee shone

In which is perfect day.



Stanza 4:

Walk in the light! and e'en the tomb

No fearful shade shall wear;

Glory shall chase away its gloom,

For Christ hath conquered there.



Stanza 5:

Walk in the light! thy path shall be

A path, tho thorny, bright;

For God, by grace, shall dwell in thee,

And God Himself is light.
