  1. 1. The light of God rests on the face
    Of brook and flow'r and tree
    And kindles in our happy hearts
    The hope of things to be.
  2. (Chorus)
    Father, let thy light divine
    Shine on us, we pray.
    Touch our eyes that we may see;
    Teach us to obey.
    Ours the sacred mission is
    To bear thy message far.
    The light of faith is in our hearts,
    Truth our guiding star.
  3. 2. The light of faith abides within
    The heart of ev'ry child;
    Like buds that wait for blossoming,
    It grows with radiance mild.
  4. 3. Today thine unseen purposes
    By faith's rare light we feel.
    Dear Father, make us pure in heart;
    To us thy will reveal.
  5. Text: Matilda Watts Cahoon, 1881-1973.
