Thy Word Is a Lamp Unto My Feet (Perry)


Thy Word Is a Lamp Unto My Feet (Perry)

Music for Choirs, Submitted Music (1998-2006)

I am a child, so far from home,

Strangely adrift yet not alone.

I’m learning line on line,

I’m growing grace by grace,

clinging to the light I have been given.

 

Until I hear thy voice,

Until I see thy face,

Until I truly taste of heaven

“thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.”

 

It leads to the source of purest light, and to all the father hath.

It resounds in my soul, like a voice from along ago,

In words so pure and sweet,

“thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.”

 

Someday beyond the veil I’ll worship at thy feet.

But ‘Til that blessed day when faith and knowledge meet:

“thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.”
