Shine Thou upon us, Lord, True Light of men, today

Matthew_5-14: Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid, I Am The Light Of The World

Matthew_5-14: Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid, I Am The Light Of The World

Shine Thou upon us, Lord,

True Light of men, today;

And through the written word,

The very self display;

That so from hearts which turn

With gazing on Thy face,

The little ones may learn

The wonders of Thy grace

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Breathe Thou upon us, Lord,

Thy Spirit’s living flame

That so with one accord

Our lips may tell Thy name;

Give thou hearing ear,

Fix Thou the wandering thought,

That those we teach may hear

The great things Thou hast

wrought.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Speak Thou for us, O Lord,

In all we say of Thee;

According to Thy word

Let all our teaching be;

That so Thy lambs may know

Their own true shepherd’s voice

Wherever He leads them go.

And in His love rejoice.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Live Thou within us, Lord;

Thy mind and will be ours;

Be Thou beIoved, adored,

And served, with all our powers;

That so our lives may teach

Thy children what Thou art,

And plead, by more than speech,

For Thee with every heart.
