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!
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.
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.
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.
