Music for Choirs, Submitted Music (2012-present)

Like sunlight gleams thy grace, O Lord,

The pow’r by which all living grow.

It shines on all and thus affords

That all might reap the good they sow.

All life and labor it sustains

And man’s divinity unchains.

 

As we ascend life’s stony path,

We look to heav’n and softly pray

For strength to do thy bidden task;

We know thou wilt provide a way.

Though we are weak, help us endure,

And make our exaltation sure.

 

Ye fearing souls who stray and hide,

Whose works are veiled by dark of night,

Will your eject that Son who shines?

Come forward and be led by Light!

His outstretched hand is unto all

Who hear his voice and heed his call.

 

We find his grace by works of faith;

Let righteous deeds fill heart and home!

That in us all might see his face

And glorify the Father’s throne.

 

Precept on precept, grace for grace,

The Savior’s path our steps retrace.

Precept on precept, grace for grace,

The Savior’ path our steps retrace.

Amen.
