Live by the Light of His Love (Bailey)
When the Savior taught by the shores of Gallilee,
In His words of love, He told people how to be.
He said, “I am the Light and the Life, Come follow me.”
Oh, then, live by the light of His love.
Oh, how blessed are they who will walk in righteous ways,
Who will love and serve and endure through all their days,
Who will trust in the Lord and delight to sing His praise,
Who will live by the light of His love.
Tho’ temptations may beckon me to stray from my course,
I will valiantly follow the Lord.
So, I will choose the right, I’ll give love and service, too,
I will hold steadfast to the things I know are ture.
I will learn what the Savior would have me say and do.
I will live by the light of His love.
In the promised land, to the righteous, anciently,
When the Lord appeared and they worshipped at His knee,
He said, “I am the Light and the Life. Come follow me.”
Oh, then, live by the light of His love
Oh, how blessed are they who are meek and pure in heart,
Who receive His name and commit to do their part,
Who will keep His commandments, then blessings freely start,
As they live by the light of His love.
