Suggested Tune Darwall's 148th ( [click tune name to play midi]

1. As in the East a light
told magi of a King
and led them through their night
our light should seekers bring.
Victorious dawn!
Oh Holy Light!
Here ends the night
in glorious morn!


2.  Now see the Glory rise
and see the darkness flee!
The curtain from our eyes
is shred and now we see
a truth divine:
We shine most bright
reflecting light
He on us shines!


3.  And if our light does shine
the glory's not for us:
The hopeless, lost and blind
must find the Light's true Source.
Oh see them come!
With praising lips
and precious gifts
unto the Son!


4.  Thus do His people grow
in number and in faith,
as each reflected glow
for one more shines the way.
So day by day
we spread the Light
which gave us sight
and bring Him praise!
