Lift up Your light shine on us Lord,
Our darkness to dispel;
That in this desert to behold,
Your grace and Your goodwill.
Lord, let it shine upon us now,
Remove distrust and fear;
That we before Your throne may bow,
And trust You more and more.
Lift up Your countenance on us,
With true and richer joy;
Your blood-bought people to release,
From all their sin and folly.
Lord let Your light and grace to shine,
Lift up Your smile on us;
That we may blossom, not decline,
And walk in righteousness.
(Tune: St. Andrew)
