O grant us light, that we may know
The wisdom Thou alone canst give,
That truth may guide where'er we go,
And virtue bless where'er we live.
O grant us light, that we may see
Where error lurks in human lore,
And turn our doubting minds to Thee,
And love Thy simple Word the more.
O grant us light, that we may learn,
How dead is life from Thee apart,
How sure is joy for all who turn
To Thee an undivided heart.
