Send Me Light

by Horatius Bonar

Lord, give me light to do thy work,
For only, Lord, from thee
Can come the light, by which these eyes
The way of life can see.

The way is narrow, often dark,
With lights and shadows strewn;
I wander oft, and think it thine,
When walking in my own.

Oh send me light to do thy work!
More light, more wisdom give;
Then shall I work thy work indeed,
While on thine earth I live.

The work is thine, not mine, O Lord;
It is thy race we run;
Give light! and then shall all I do
Be well and truly done.


Send the light! send me light!
Light along the toilsome way!
Send me light, dear Lord, that I may labor on,
Till I rest in eternal day.
