Why In Darkness Grope


Why in darkness grope, soul bereft of hope,
On life’s journey sad and lone?
Hast thou not yet heard of the heav’nly word:
For the righteous light is sown?

Chorus:
Open wide the windows, Open wide the windows
Darken’d by the shades of sin,
Let the light of heaven, blessed light of heaven,
Joy of souls redeem’d, shine in.

Pass from earthly night into heav’nly light,
As thy soul exulting sings,
That he has to bless, Sun of righteousness,
Ris’n with healing in his wings. [Chorus]

O the wondrous light, O the path made bright,
May we always walk therein,
Till we reach the goal of the life-bound soul,
Safe beyond this night of sin. [Chorus]
