Will There Be Light As In The Night


Will there be light
As in the night
I cross the narrow sea?
Will hope’s clear ray
Direct my way
And lov’d ones appear to me?

Refrain:
There shall be light
Peaceful and bright
To lead me safely home,
My bark to guide
At eventide
Across the ocean foam.

When I draw near
That land so dear
Will white-rob’d angels come,
Beckon and smile-
Friends lost a while-
To welcome me to my home? [Refrain]

God will send light
As nears my night,
My sinking soul to save;
His stars divine
Shall brightly shine
Far over the surging wave. [Refrain]
