When The World Is Brightest


When the world is brightest,
and our hearts are lighest,
blessed Jesus, hear us!
Let thy hand be near us!

When life’s scene is shaded,
all its bright hopes faded,
blessed Jesus, hear us!
Light of heaven, be near us!

When with blessings sated,
or by praise elated,
blessed Jesus, hear us!
Let thy cross be near us!

When our foes surround us,
while our sins have bound us,
blessed Jesus, hear us!
Let thy help be near us!

When the night of sorrow,
makes us dread tomorrow,
blessed Jesus, hear us!
Light of heaven, be near us!
