Christ The Light

by Harriet Pierson

When the clouds gather thickly, and the shadows lie
Dark and deep across the way
We must tread from day to day,
There's a light to cheer us; lo it gleams on high,
Like a beacon in the midnight sky.

For the feet that have wandered from the path astray,
Lost in mazes dark and wild,
By the lure of sin beguiled,
Still the Day-star is pointing to the shining way,
Leading upward to the gates of day.

O'er the hills comes the dawning, with its radiance bright;
'Tis the Sun of Righteousness
Come to heal a world's distress;
Soon His rays will illumine all the earth's dark night
With a glory from the heav'nly height.


See the light shining clear!
'Tis the Christ that our longing eyes behold;
He will lead us on till the night is gone,
And the splendors of the morn unfold.
