Many in darkness are far astray,
Carry the light, carry the light,
Spreading the beams of the Gospel day,
Carry the beautiful light;
Tell them the gift of the Father’s love,
How the dear Savior He gave;
Tell them of mercy that smiles above,
Jesus almighty to save!

Refrain

Light! light! beautiful light!
Streaming from heaven’s fair height;
Living for Jesus, our precious Savior,
Carry the beautiful light.

Let us unite in this best employ,
Carry the light, carry the light;
Tell the good news of salvation’s joy,
Carry the beautiful light.
Singing of Jesus, our songs are bright,
Bright with the blessing He brings;
Helping to scatter the shades of night.
Sing of the Lord’s healing wings.

Refrain

Living for Jesus, we’ll work and pray,
Carry the light, carry the light;
Walking with Him in the shining way,
Carry the beautiful light;
O, there’s a glory that fills the heart,
Sunshine of pardon and peace;
Let us the secret to all impart,
Helping the kingdom’s increase.

Refrain

Clearer and clearer the dayspring glows,
Carry the light, carry the light;
Brighter and brighter the morning grows,
Carry the beautiful light.
Jesus is coming in wondrous might,
Coming in splendor to reign;
Sorrow and sighing shall take their flight,
Eden shall blossom again.

Refrain
