Like a little babe, confiding,
Thus my all to Thee submitting,
“ IF YE WALK IN THE LIGHT"
Walk in the light! so shalt thou know
That fellowship of love,
Who reigns in light above.
Shall ne'er defile again ;
Shall cleanse from every stain.
Walk in the light! and thou shalt find

In whom no darkness is. Walk in the light! and thou shalt own
Thy darkness passed away, Because that light hath on thee shone,
In which is perfect day.
Walk in the light! and e'en the tomb
No fearful shade shall wear ; Glory shall chase away its gloom,
For Christ hath conquer'd there! Walk in the light! and thou shalt see
A path, though thorny, bright; For God, by grace, shall dwell in thee,
And God Himself is light.

Measuring in calm presage
