The Light of the World Is Jesus
Words and Music by Philip P. Bliss

John 12:46
"I am come a light into the world, that whosoever
believeth on me should not abide in darkness."

          The whole world was lost in the darkness of sin;
          The Light of the world is Jesus;
          Like sunshine at noonday His glory shone in,
          The Light of the world is Jesus.

            Chorus
            Come to the Light, 'tis shining for thee;
            Sweetly the Light has dawned upon me;
            Once I was blind, but now I can see;
            The Light of the world is Jesus.

          No darkness have we who in Jesus abide,
          The Light of the world is Jesus.
          We walk in the Light when we follow our Guide,
          The Light of the world is Jesus.

            Chorus
            Come to the Light, 'tis shining for thee;
            Sweetly the Light has dawned upon me;
            Once I was blind, but now I can see;
            The Light of the world is Jesus.

          Ye dwellers in darkness with sin blinded eyes,
          The Light of the world is Jesus.
          Go, wash at His bidding, and light will arise,
          The Light of the world is Jesus.

            Chorus
            Come to the Light, 'tis shining for thee;
            Sweetly the Light has dawned upon me;
            Once I was blind, but now I can see;
            The Light of the world is Jesus.

          No need of the sunlight in Heaven, we're told,
          The Light of the world is Jesus.
          The Lamb is the Light in the City of Gold,
          The Light of the world is Jesus.

            Chorus
            Come to the Light, 'tis shining for thee;
            Sweetly the Light has dawned upon me;
            Once I was blind, but now I can see;
            The Light of the world is Jesus.
